First Lady Michelle Obama will appear on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as part of her ongoing Joining Forces initiative to help military families.

The White House made the announcement today Monday.

Michelle will tape the episode with a military family, the Marshalls, in Fayetteville, N.C., later this week. The show will feature Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy veteran who started a home called “The Steps-N-Stages Jubilee House.”

That establishment gives homeless female vets a place to stay and other aid. Hard to think of a better cause for Obama or anyone else to support.

The Extreme Makeover team will be building a new jubilee house in this week’s taping. The episode of the ABC show is scheduled to air in October.

This is not Michelle Obama’s first stop to promote Joining Forces. Last month, the First Lady taped a special appearance on iCarly on Nickelodeon.

That episode is slated to air in January.
