In one day, a single volunteer with no previous construction experience can mud and spackle several rooms, install a new floor or paint a small house. Imagine what’s possible in two days-or two weeks, or a month? The more volunteers we have, the greater our impact.

Individuals and groups can volunteer in any of the locations in which SBP is currently active. Corporate groups, school groups and religious groups are welcome. Our experienced AmeriCorps site supervisors will train and equip you, with your safety our top priority.

As a volunteer, you will literally help rebuild a family's home. This may include hanging insulation or drywall, mudding/spackling, sanding, texturing, priming, painting, laying floors, and/or hanging trim, doors and baseboards.

Mission Statement

Shrinking time between disaster and recovery.

Description

SBP seeks to achieve its mission via five interventions:

  1. Rebuild homes quickly after disasters by mobilizing private sector innovations and assigning a single point of contact to make the home rebuilding process faster and more predictable.

  2. Share rebuilding innovations with other rebuilding organizations to allow for efficient, predictable recovery on a national scale.

  3. Prepare home and business owners prior to and following disaster with specific steps to mitigate risk and improve resilience.

  4. Advise policy makers immediately after a disaster so they can deploy federal dollars sooner, and in a way that empowers an efficient recovery.

  5. Advocate for the reform of disaster recovery strategies in the U.S. to improve the predictability and speed of recovery.
