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 3000 homes and developed affordable housing for those impacted by natural disasters. Hurricanes like Ida, Harvey, Maria, and Katrina disproportionately affect underresourced communities, whose road to recovery often takes years. By practicing efficient construction techniques, we help clients restore emotional well-being, financial stability, and enhance community resilience. We prioritize energy efficiency and use techniques such as FORTIFIED roofs to prevent damage from future storms.

    As an AmeriCorps member serving with SBP, you will be part of the growing national service movement. You will receive professional development with a dynamic social-impact organization that is pioneering a new model for disaster recovery to support people, especially those who are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. If you’re committed to learning, have a strong work ethic, and enjoy working with volunteers, we want you on our team!
  • Our Impact
    Take a gap year with us! You can choose to directly assist in our construction and disaster deployment efforts, or choose to play a crucial role in coordinating services to disaster survivors. We serve in communities to ensure that individuals impacted by a disaster have a safe, stable place to call home. Our AmeriCorps team does this by 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.

    AmeriCorps positions with SBP:

    Project Lead: you will rebuild, construct, and fortify the homes of disaster survivors. You will learn and master many phases of construction, and lead, mentor, and coach volunteers as they assist with your rebuilding efforts. You will learn sustainability and energy efficiency techniques that help homes better withstand future storms.

    Volunteer Coordinator: you will recruit and coordinate volunteer visits. You will welcome volunteer groups, talk to them about the impact of their service, and empower individuals to join us in being part of the solution!

    Supply & Logistics Coordinator: you will streamline SBP's warehouse and delivery system operations and make daily deliveries of supplies to our service sites. By prioritizing efficiency and ensuring our sites have the materials they need, you will actively help SBP reduce the time to bring disaster-impacted families back home.

    Construction Coordinator: you will oversee the construction progress of our client’s homes from start to finish, whether securing proper permits for each site, designing subcontractor schedules, or monitoring overall site progress.

    Client Services Coordinator: you will be our clients’ main point of contact throughout their time with SBP, offering them support by assessing needs, providing referrals, and guiding the application and construction process.

    Disaster Corps Project Lead: you will embody SBP’s dedication to timely response, deploying to disaster-impacted communities following the immediate impact of natural disasters. When not on deployment, you will serve as Project Leads supporting recovery in your community. This role is only available at the New Orleans and Houston operating sites.

    Previous construction experience is not required. Training will be provided!
