Lee BIA Builders Care, Stevens Construction partner to rebuild home for Fort Myers family in need
The Floridant/10262908

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Floridant -- A Fort Myers family is receiving a new home thanks to a partnership between Lee BIA Builders Care, Stevens Construction and community partners.

Myrtle Dillard is a Fort Myers resident who has lived in her home for 33 years. Originally built in 1927, the 958-square-foot dwelling had fallen into a state of disrepair. Over time, the family faced significant challenges in maintaining the home. Caring for her daughter and granddaughters, Dillard's health concerns and the recent passing of her husband have made Dillard's need for support critical. The home requires extensive repairs and lacks necessary accessibility features for Dillard, who relies on wheelchair access.

Stevens Construction committed to rebuilding the Dillard family's home, which ensures that the family can live safely. Builders Care and Stevens Construction celebrated the start of construction with a kickoff demolition on March 1, where project partners, donors and community leaders surrounded the Dillard family with support as construction crews began demolishing the home.

"We're excited to mark the beginning of this transformative project with a demolition event, symbolizing the start of a new chapter for the Dillard family," said Dan Adams, executive vice president of Stevens Construction. "The demolition will pave the way for the construction of a brand-new home, tailored to meet the unique needs of Myrtle and her family. This is a life-changing project for the Dillard family, and we're honored to be a part of it."

Builders Care and Stevens Construction invite the community to follow the journey of the Dillard family and witness the transformation of their new home. An Amazon Wish List for the Dillard family has been created at https://www.amazon.com/registries/gl/guest-view/1TUCTR3NSKYSL.

"We are honored to help provide the Dillard family with a fresh start and a home that prioritizes safety and accessibility," said Randy Thibaut, board member and co-founder of Lee BIA Builders Care and CEO and founder of Retland Holdings. "Builders Care looks for homeowners who are really in need – not just want. The Dillard family was not asking for a thing but had a great need for emergency construction services. This project exemplifies the spirit of community and compassion, as we come together to make a meaningful difference in the lives of this special family."
