We shrink the time between disaster and recovery.

We can't prevent natural disasters, but we can prevent some of the suffering they cause. By increasing resilience before disasters occur and streamlining the post-disaster recovery process, we're able to fortify people against unnecessary stress and trauma.

  • About Us
    Since 2006, SBP has rebuilt 2000 homes and developed affordable housing for those impacted by natural disasters. We help community members return home by engaging volunteers who care about people that they have never met before. By practicing efficient construction techniques, we help clients restore emotional well-being, financial stability, and enhance community resilience. AmeriCorps members serving with SBP directly impact the lives of our clients by contributing to the SBP mission: shrinking the time between disaster and recovery.

    Join us as an AmeriCorps member and you will develop skills in public speaking, problem-solving, and project management. While serving with SBP, you will achieve measurable results for our clients, gain leadership experience and create connections with volunteers and corporate partners. You will also receive coaching and mentorship from SBP managers that are invested in your success as a leader!
  • Our Impact
    AmeriCorps members serve in communities to ensure that individuals impacted by a disaster have a safe, stable place to call home. There are several ways that AmeriCorps members help our clients return home, including: rehabilitating damaged homes, building new homes for families that lost everything and transforming blighted properties by constructing affordable homes in communities recovering from a disaster.


    Members serve with SBP in a variety of roles:

    Project Lead: Train and coach volunteers in completing basic construction tasks on clients’ homes. Celebrate volunteer impact and teach volunteers to adhere to safety protocols and procedures at project sites.

    Supply & Logistics Coordinator: Coordinate the operations of SBP’s warehouse and delivery system to ensure that project sites have the tools and materials needed to function in an optimal manner.

    Construction Coordinator: Coordinate subcontractor schedules and monitor the progress of construction projects. Ensure that proper permits are secured for each project site.

    Client Services Coordinator: Serve as the point of contact and resource for the clients of SBP. Assess clients’ needs and provide referrals to clients throughout the application and rebuilding processes.

    Volunteer Coordinator: Recruit, orient and support volunteers serving with SBP. Create an optimal service experience for volunteers that fosters service learning and leverages volunteers' talents and time to meet client and community needs.

    Previous construction experience is not required. Training will be provided during the onboarding process.
