Hosts Rob and Treger Strasberg run a nonprofit dedicated to helping deserving families in transition by turning their house into a home and changing lives along the way. Each episode, we meet a family emerging from difficult circumstances as they finally move into a new living space to call their own. To help the family with their fresh start, Treger, Rob, and a dedicated team of designers and volunteers will transform the family's bare house into a warm home by using goods and services donated by people in the community. The new home will provide much-needed stability to meet the family's specific needs, stimulate their interests, and promote their goals. Welcome Home will teach viewers the importance of giving back in their communities, to never give up when faced with a tough situation, and gratitude for the basic living necessities that we often take for granted. This station airs KXTU on the stations secondary digital channel 21.2.
