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. 

By taking a targeted approach to the wide-ranging task of disaster preparation and recovery, we’re able to have a greater impact and help speed recovery on a larger scale.

Where We Help

SBP provides resilience training in ten communities per year and engages in recovery efforts across the country to make vulnerable residents resilient to potential disaster and rebuild for those who have survived disaster. SBP is currently conducting resilience training and is leading recovery operations in the following locations:
