- Finalist 1: Judy Robinson of Nashville, TN nominated by herself.
Judy has been unemployed since February 2016 and has also had to take care of her three grandchildren. She paid a contractor to install a new roof several years ago and has had constant leaks because of improper installation.
- Finalist 2: Neena Dagen of Goodlettsville, TN nominated by Syreeta Hoskins.
Neena and Syreeta moved to TN in 2014 are raising Syreeta's niece and nephew because their family situation was not good. They are a family of four but only Syreeta is working. Their roof is in extremely bad shape and they have no insurance.
- Finalist 3: Carrie Parman of Antioch, TN nominated by her mother, Debbie Parman.
Her roof is 15 years old and is worn, weathered and storm damaged to the point that she now has water circles appearing in her upstairs bedroom. She purchased her home 5 years ago, however, hard times have fallen upon her more than a few times and each time harder than the last. She has almost lost her home a couple of times and her homeowners insurance sky rocketed because she tragically had a little girl drown in her pool. She also helps to co-raise her nephew and 2 nieces.
- Finalist 4: Maria Arthur of Murfreesboro TN nominated by her daughter, Jade Arthur.
Jade was born with a large facial tumor called a Hemangioma and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. Maria gave up her career to care for Jade and the family has struggled to make ends meet ever since. Jade wrote that her Mom and dad recently learned that their home needs a new roof, which they definitely cannot afford.
