Proceeds from BBQ, Bands & Brew benefit Lee BIA Builders Care construction services. Builders Care is the non-profit arm of the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA) providing emergency construction services to elderly and disabled Lee County homeowners in need. To date, Builders Care has completed over 300 projects and provided over $4 million in construction services at no cost to Lee County homeowners.
For many, Builders Care is the last hope for the elderly and disabled homeowners to maintain any quality of life and live independently in their home. Builders Care specializes in making homes handicapped - accessible, repairing roofs, siding and leaks, painting, making general repairs, and installing heating and air conditioning. According to the 2000 Census, there were 4,124 substandard housing units in all of Lee County.
Builders Care provides services to our most vulnerable populations, elderly and disabled individuals. Recipients are homeowners who are in financial need and are living with housing conditions that pose a safety or health threat. Typically,this population has sought help with other agencies and had limited success with assistance in home repairs. They tend to have dire needs and live in some of the most unimaginable and deplorable conditions, as well as, having no family able to assist them.
