Builders Care is a faith based nonprofit construction contractor whose mission is to provide affordable to no cost construction services to the elderly, disabled, other nonprofits in Northeast Florida with the kindred purpose of building a better habitat for all. We combine purchased and donated material with volunteer and professional labor to provide cost effective construction to those in need.
For many, Builders Care is their last hope to maintain any quality of life at home. Builders Care specializes in making homes handicapped-accessible, repairing roofs, siding and leaks, painting, making general repairs, and installing heating and air conditioning.
Since 2001 Builders Care has helped hundreds of people in Northeast Florida in need of critical home repairs. For many low-income residents, owning a home is a burden, when there are no funds to repair or maintain their property. The ultimate goal of Builders Care is to provide quality home reconstruction to those who are unable to afford it otherwise.
The work of Builders Care began in 2001, but we are still facing an enormous need. There are an estimated 45,000 substandard houses in Northeast Florida in desperate need of repair. Many of these people are elderly or disabled. Typically, their only source of income is social security. This barely leaves money to cover food and medicine and there is no money left over for necessary home maintenance or repairs. Typically, these people sit in silence out of fear they will be forced out of their homes or face fines from municipal authorities. The work that Builders Care does allows them to safely remain in their homes.
All residents of Northeast Florida deserve to live in dignity; you can personally help your neighbors by volunteering with Builders Care or through in-kind and financial donations.
