New Orleans, LA

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.

Houston, TX

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. SBP arrived in Houston, Texas within days of the storm in 2017 and remains committed to the community until recovery is complete.

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.

Puerto Rico

In September 2017, Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico and caused unprecedented destruction across the island. Hurricane Maria resulted in the largest blackout in U.S. history, where many residents remained without power, living in horrific conditions, over a year after the storm. Tragically, 100% of the island was declared a disaster area, and the death toll of 2,975 made Hurricane Maria one of the deadliest storms on record.

Florida Panhandle

Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle in October 2018 with strong winds that destroyed entire communities, knocking homes to the ground. SBP deployed several teams of AmeriCorps members to help before partnering with Hope Panhandle to begin rebuilding the Bay County area.

Bahamas

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 day 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 Bahama.

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.

Resilience Training Locations

SBP offers FREE resilience training for home and business owners in communities that have been identified as “at-risk” based on population, risk to wind or water events, median household income, and homeownership rates. We are actively training in these locations:

New Orleans, LA; Baton Rouge, LA; Houston, TX

Columbia, SC

In October of 2015, Hurricane Joaquin caused historic, widespread flooding that devastated the state of South Carolina.

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.

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.

MONMOUTH & OCEAN COUNTY, NJ

As part of its Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts, SBP rebuilds homes in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, where there is still a tremendous need nearly five years after Sandy.
