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 welcomed. 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.
No experience is necessary! SBP provides all the necessary supervision, tools, materials, and personal protective equipment.
About SBP: SBP's mission is to shrink the time between disaster and recovery. Since its founding in 2006 in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, SBP has rebuilt homes for more than 2,000 families with the help of 130,000 volunteers in 13 communities across the U.S. and the Bahamas. SBP shrinks time between disaster and recovery through five interventions: Rebuilding efficiently; Sharing our model with other organizations; Preparing home and business owners through resilience training; Advising municipal and state officials, and Advocating for policy changes and improvements to the disaster recovery industry. To achieve our mission, SBP takes a holistic approach to disasters—increasing resilience before and
streamlining recovery after.
