Mission Statement

SBP's mission is to reduce the time between disaster and full recovery.

Description

SBP is a national disaster relief and rebuilding organization that started in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. For ten years, SBP's mission has been to shrink time between disaster and recovery. We help low-moderate income families with an emphasis on the elderly, disabled, and families with small children. SBP is able to function in a fast, efficient, and predictable way because of three factors: 1) our dedicated AmeriCorps members, 2) our sponsors and financial supporters, and 3) our committed volunteers . Volunteers are led by trained Site Supervisors and assist on project sites through all phases of construction. No experience is necessary. Our team has been on the ground in Texas since the Memorial Day Floods. To date, we have rebuilt over 1,060 homes nationally and we have committed to rebuilding 30 homes in San Marcos within the year. There are still hundreds of families in need and homes in disrepair after last year's historic floods, and volunteers like you are vital to restoring this community.
