Service Year Programs Respond to Disasters

When disaster strikes, service year corps members are often the first on the scene and the last to leave. These young people are helping communities immediately respond and they continue to provide support and help rebuild long after the cameras leave. Many service year programs are still in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, helping respond to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

Service Years Bring Families Home After Disasters

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina flooded 80% of New Orleans. Twelve years later, many still haven’t returned to their homes. One of these homeowners is Bridget Anderson. Thanks to young people doing a service year at SBP, Bridget Anderson and her family are finally returning home.
