First Lady Michelle Obama will roll up her sleeves as a volunteer on ABC’s "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

Mrs. O is heading to North Carolina tomorrow to help build a community center in Fayetteville for homeless female veterans, ABC News reports.

The First Lady will also spend some one-on-one time with the community center's founder, Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy veteran who will also receive a new home on the show.

Mrs. Obama's work with "Extreme Makeover" falls in line with her Joining Forces initiative to support veterans and their families. The episode is set to air in October.
