St. Bernard Project

The non-profit formerly known as the St. Bernard Project began after Hurricane Katrina, repairing damaged homes in flooded areas. It’s now called “S-B-P” and has helped non-profits across the country jump-start recoveries after disasters.

Now, its AmeriCorps volunteers are working in flooded areas in the Baton Rouge area.  WWNO’s Eileen Fleming spoke with SBP Co-founder Zack Rosenburg about what’s happening around the state.

A New Orleans-area non-profit is marking the 20th anniversary of the AmeriCorps volunteer program with all-night rebuilding projects. The events are planned at disaster-recovery zones from the Gulf Coast to New York City.

Eight years after Hurricane Katrina, John and Vanessa Ross are finally able to return to their Gentilly home. It’s the 500th homecoming party provided through the St. Bernard Project since the storm.

The St. Bernard Project is announcing a $100,000 grant from Toyota to continue building and rebuilding homes damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The non-profit is even more grateful for training it received from the car manufacturer.
