[K12OSN] Linux Directory Permissions -- Help me clean up my mess

Hello all,
    I accidentally changed the permissions of all the directories in 
/home to be owned by "root."  can someone tell me how to change the 
"owner" back to the individual user.  Perhaps a bash script (which I 
know nothing about) that will scan /home and change the the owner to the 
name of the directory?  Example:  directory aabrown should be owned by 
aabrown.  Any help would be appreciated.
