Cecil's Story

WE SHRINK THE TIME BETWEEN DISASTER AND RECOVERY.

At SBP, we eliminate unnecessary suffering by helping those affected by disasters to rebuild and recover. By cultivating resilience before disasters occur and streamlining the post-disaster recovery process, we’re able to lessen the amount of time people experience stress and trauma.

While we can’t prevent natural disasters, we believe we can prevent some of the suffering that comes with them. SBP shrinks time between disaster and recovery through five interventions: Rebuilding homes; Sharing our model with other rebuilding organizations; Preparing home and business owners in advance of disasters; Advising policy makers after disasters; and Advocating for the reform of disaster recovery strategies. To achieve our mission, SBP takes a holistic approach to—increasing resilience before, and streamlining recovery after natural and manmade disasters.
