A home in desperate need of repairs has a whole new look, thanks to volunteers with the Houston police department. Off-duty officers spent the day sprucing up Joann Booth's home on pomander in southeast Houston. They mowed the lawn, painted her house and installed new doors and a wheelchair ramp.

The volunteers partnered with "Rebuilding Together Houston," which provides home repair services for elderly or disabled homeowners.
