New Orleans & Southeast Louisiana

SBP’s roots and headquarters are in New Orleans. Originally founded in St. Bernard Parish, SBP’s headquarters moved to the Mid City neighborhood in 2016. SBP’s New Orleans operation rebuilds for residents whose homes sustained damage from Hurricanes Katrina, Isaac, and Ida, as well as the 2022 New Orleans East Tornado.

Puerto Rico

Hurricane Fiona landed on the southwest coast of Puerto Rico on Sunday, September 18, 2022, just two days before the anniversary of Hurricane Maria, a devastating Category 4 storm that struck on September 20, 2017. As a Category 1 storm, Fiona covered the entire island with tropical storm-force winds extending as far as 140 miles (220 kilometers) from the storm's center. Heavy rain and winds have unleashed widespread flooding, devastating landslides, and island-wide power outages, leaving many uncertain about what is to come.


Hurricane Ian made landfall on September 28, 2022, in southwest Florida as one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the U.S. The large, deadly, and destructive Category 4 storm caused catastrophic damage in parts of Southwest Florida and North Carolina, mostly from flooding due to extreme storm surges and rainfall.


In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas Gulf Coast, causing widespread wind damage and historic flooding. The catastrophic storm, which damaged or destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses, caused an estimated $75 billion in losses and displaced one-third of the area’s population.


On September 1, 2019, Hurricane Dorian engulfed Abaco and Grand Bahama island as a Category 5 hurricane with sustained winds of 185 mph, battering the islands for three days before pulling away. In its wake, entire communities lay in ruins -- homes and businesses torn completely from their foundations by 20-foot storm surge and gale-force winds. Those lucky enough to survive faced flooding on a scale unseen before in the Bahamas.

Southwest Louisiana

Hurricane Laura was a deadly and damaging Category 4 hurricane that tied the 1856 Last Island hurricane and 2021's Hurricane Ida as the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in the state of Louisiana.

St. Vincent

On April 22, 2021, the La Soufrière volcano erupted on the main island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, eclipsing the sun. Its toxic powdery residue blanketed the streets, city infrastructure, and homes of those evacuating to safety, causing roofs to cave in and walls to buckle under its weight. When residents returned, many found their homes destroyed and their lives inundated by ash.

Columbia, SC

In October 2015, Hurricane Joaquin stalled over South Carolina, causing historic rainfall and resulting in widespread and devastating flooding across 36 of South Carolina’s 46 counties. SBP rebuilt over 250 homes, assisting hundreds of families through the support of partners and funders, including the United Way of the Midlands, The One SC Fund, and the Micahel J. Mungo Foundation.

Joplin, MO

On May 22nd, 2011 an EF5 tornado devastated Joplin, taking 161 lives, destroying 7,500 homes and over 500 businesses. SBP rebuilt 181 homes for families in need, helping residents complete the recovery eighteen months ahead of schedule.

Rockaway, NY

On October 29th, 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the Northeast, flooding the homes of thousands of hardworking New York City families. SBP rebuilt over 381 Sandy-damaged homes across the Rockaway Peninsula, the greater Queens area, South Brooklyn, and the south shore of Staten Island.

White Sulphur Springs, WV

Historic flooding hit several West Virginia counties in June 2016, destroying countless properties and uprooting families across the state. SBP partnered with local and national organizations invested in recoveries in various flood-affected areas of the state to bolster their capacity and achieve maximum efficiency.

San Marcos, Texas

May and October of 2015 saw two devastating flood events in central Texas. Hundreds of families were displaced or living in their flood damaged homes. SBP partnered with local and national organizations to bring these families home.
