Helping Hands Program 2014

The Builders Association of Western Nevada (Nevada Builders Alliance) Women’s Council:


Is pleased to continue our Helping Hands program.   It allows us to offer you the opportunity to receive a Helping Hand with your home project.  Please think about your request and make sure it falls within these parameters for consideration:

  1. Single female homeowner
  2. Applicant’s name must appear on the assessor’s role.
  3. Is to be done at your owned residence.
  4. Can be completed within 1-2 days or less.
  5. Will require you to execute a Release of All Claims before receiving our Helping Hands.
  6. The residence must be located in one of the following Counties: Carson City, Douglas County, or Lyon County.


Examples:  Light painting, caulking, replacing hardware, replace purchased light fixtures, replace purchased ceiling fans, replace purchased faucets and bathroom fixtures, light fence repairs, light yard work, weatherization, minor repairs to shelves and/or cabinets, light irrigation repair, repair or replace purchased lock assembly sets, etc.


All applications will be reviewed for compliance to these parameters.  All work done is facilitated by donation of labor and materials, if homeowner needs replacement of items they need to be purchased by the homeowner if donations of material are not available.


Applicants will be chosen and an initial home visit will be scheduled to review repairs. After all site visits are completed the Council will then award assistance based on time and budget availability.  Final approvals will be made in September 2014.  Coordination of labor and materials and completion of projects will be done in late September or early October 2014.


Applications are due by August 29, 2014.  Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted.
