ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(dramatic music)

- I didn't know the Youngstown my father did,

with the steel mills downtown flooded

with people.

- That one is empty.

That one's abandoned.

That one's abandoned.

- Hi.

I just want to be happy when I get home.

- [Tiffany] My role is to find

the houses that can be saved.

This is what we walk into after

a squatter has been in a house.

But sometimes you don't,

something catches your eye

and then you start to wonder,

what is the person's story who was here?

- You know you wonder why like certain people won't come

to your business or this,

because of the neighborhood looks scary,

who's in charge of this stuff?

- [President Trump] I'm gonna bring your industry back.

- He was working at US Steel. - 44 years ago.

If I had to do it over again,

I would not have been in Youngstown.

Yeah, I truly regret it.

- I don't want to leave. - All right everyone,

we need to clear out

the whole house. - Come on in guys.

- [Ian] We can still do something.

We can still fight.

- I've never dreamed of owning my own home.

I like it.

I really, really hope I do get it.

- One, two, three.

(people shouting)

- [Ian] This is the place that shaped me

and made me who I am.

It's my home.
