Billy & Lauren Phinizy currently live in Kendall, Florida with their two young children, Benjamin (7) and Grace (5). While the family is faced with many challenges, they remain hardworking & humble. They love to have a good time, but also understand the value of working for everything they have & giving back. Billy’s military service began in the 1990s, and he served as a 68w combat medic both times he was deployed to Afghanistan.

Although Billy loves his country and is proud of his service, when he returned home, Lauren knew something wasn’t right. Shortly after his return, Billy spent several months in an inpatient facility for severe PTSD. At that time, they discovered he also had a “ton” of other health related issues. This resulted in his immediate medical retirement & being classified as 100% permanently & totally disabled by the VA. However, the Phinizys do not let this stop them. This amazing family still works to make every day a GREAT day!

In Phase Two of the Phinizy family makeover, a slew of generous partners and tireless volunteers chip in to serve a deserving military family. From new flooring, blinds and bathrooms to electrical fixes and a new TV in every room, the makeover partners are off and running!
