Builders Care, Christopher Alan Homes rebuild Fort Myers home

Lee BIA Builders Care, Christopher Alan Homes and community partners came together on Jan. 13 to write notes of love on the framework of a new home being built at no cost to a Fort Myers homeowner.

Nancy Jackson, a third-generation Fort Myers native, has lived in her residence for more than 20 years, but the home’s condition was deteriorating. Jackson learned of Builders Care, a nonprofit that provides emergency construction services at no cost to elderly and/or disabled homeowners. She had a small request for the organization to repair some damage around her home.

When Builders Care brought in partner Christopher Alan Homes, the scope of the project took on new life. Dilapidated flooring, plumbing, electrical and many other issues throughout the home presented significant safety concerns for the homeowner given her health issues and limited mobility.

Rather than remodel, Builders Care and Christopher Alan Homes requested permission to demolish the entire structure and are now in the process of rebuilding a new, accessible home that will provide Jackson with greater safety and comfort for years to come.

Since 2005, Lee BIA Builders Care has helped nearly 500 individuals and families by providing A/C repairs, wheelchair ramps, roof replacements, remodeling projects and other critical repairs that allow deserving elderly and/or disabled homeowners, and their families, to live safely and comfortably in their own homes. Projects are made possible through generous donors and community partners who provide labor and materials to bring a project into reality.
