SBP has teamed up with Mosaic Center to bring even more families home and benefit the community at large. Our missions have joined together for one cause; to help bring families home who lost everything to a natural disaster. SBP is an award-winning, nonprofit rebuilding organization whose mission is to ensure that disaster-impacted citizens and communities recover in a prompt, efficient and predictable manner. Through Disaster Recovery Lab, SBP works to share lessons learned, prevent common barriers to recovery and help communities utilize SBP’s standardized, repeatable and proven-effective model. Since its founding in 2006, in response to Hurricane Katrina, SBP has rebuilt homes for over 1600 families with the help of over 100,000 volunteers in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La; Joplin, MO; Rockaway, NY; Monmouth and Ocean Counties, NJ; San Marcos, TX; Columbia, SC; Houston, TX, and Puerto Rico.
