Lee BIA Builders Care is a private non-profit organization with the mission to provide emergency construction services at no cost to needy and deserving elderly and/or disabled homeowners, and their families, who cannot obtain repairs through traditional means. We are the non-profit arm governed by the Lee Building Industry Association using local contractors, companies, and volunteers to help make a difference for those in need. Since we are not a government agency, our criteria are not the same.
To qualify for our services, you or your immediate family residing in the same home must meet the following requirements:
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ONLY PROVIDE SERVICES IN LEE COUNTY, FLORIDA.
If you fit those criteria, then you should submit an application for services. You may download the application by clicking here.
Please understand that we have a long waiting list for services, but do try and meet the most emergency needs first. Any additional information shared about your story, photos or nominations is greatly appreciated.
If you do not meet the criteria for assistance from Builders Care, we encourage you to call one of the following agencies for possible resources for assistance:
- Lee County Dept. of Human Services (239) 533-7900
- Aging and Disability Resource Center (866) 413-5337 or (239) 652-6901
