On August 26, 2017 Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Houston, Texas bringing with it record breaking rainfall and it became the costliest hurricane to ever hit the United States with an estimated $200 billion in damage. At its height, Harvey displaced more than 30,000 people in the Houston area and while rebuilding efforts have been ongoing, there is much work to do.
This program is an opportunity to give back and help Houston homeowners recover from the effects of Harvey. Participants will be spending their days working under the direction of Westcoast Connection and SBP and their Americorps members in Houston on an active build site to directly help with the rebuilding efforts.
SBP is a national organization born out of the rebuilding process of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans with the goal of shrinking the time between disaster and recovery. Since 2006, SBP has directly rebuilt homes for more than 1,300 families with the help of more than 180,000 volunteers across the country. SBP has committed to supporting long-term recovery in Texas and has opened an office in Houston to conduct operations.
