Help for Rebuilding Organizations and Nonprofits

A core part of SBP’s culture is the philosophy that if it works well, you must share it. In the corporate world, companies consider their formulas, patents and models to be proprietary. In our people-serving world, we believe that SBP has an obligation to share effective solutions so that greater numbers of people can benefit, thereby shrinking time between disaster and recovery. In disaster recovery, what works can save lives and alleviate suffering. When the goal is to get families back home, it should not matter which organization's "line" an impacted homeowner gets in, as long as the rebuilding services they receive are efficient and effective.

To that end, SBP works closely with local and national organizations to share our best practices, training partners to utilize SBP’s innovative, proven-effective rebuilding model. This raises the collective capacity to serve disaster-impacted communities quickly, efficiently and at high-quality standards so that a greater number of residents have a shorter recovery time.

To help local and regional rebuilding organizations adopt SBP's model, SBP offers training and resources that local and grassroots organizations in disaster impacted areas can use to quickly implement SBP's proven-effective model, thereby shortening and improving residential recovery in those communities. Pulling from best practices and lessons learned from the communities we’ve served, our trainings equip partners with operational knowledge and tools to grow impact when capacity is needed most. SBP’s experience provides practical, actionable steps that learners can take to address real-world challenges commonly encountered by individuals, community leaders and organizations to prepare for and respond after a disaster. This invaluable resource streamlines the post-disaster recovery process and helps shrink the time between disaster and recovery.

Examples of this activity include:

In the Greater Houston Area, SBP partnered with the JJ Watt Foundation to fund rebuilding, training and capacity building across partner organizations to serve more clients affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Across North Carolina, SBP partners with the American Red Cross, the Foundation for the Carolinas and AmeriCorps to fund rebuilding, training and capacity building across partners to serve more clients affected by Hurricane Florence.
