Help Southeast Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey and Winter Storm Uri by serving on our AmeriCorps team!

SBP is a national nonprofit dedicated to shrinking the time between disaster and recovery. Since 2006, we have rebuilt over 2000 homes and developed affordable housing for people impacted by natural disasters. With the dedication and passion of our staff, AmeriCorps members, and volunteers, we help community members return home to safe, sanitary, and secure conditions.

SBP AmeriCorps members help communities achieve long-term recovery by rebuilding neighborhoods destroyed by Hurricane Harvey and Winter Storm Uri. Houston members may also serve in SBP’s Opportunity Housing Program in addition to working with home repair clients. The Opportunity Housing Program provides affordable, storm-resilient, energy-efficient homes for sale and rent to lower-income residents, to help them build resilience before disaster strikes. AmeriCorps members will gain valuable experience in how to redevelop neighborhoods and build housing that is affordable and resilient. AmeriCorps members commit to serving full time and completing 1700 hours of service during a temporary 10-month service term.


JOIN the SBP AmeriCorps team and serve in one of the following roles:

- As a Project Lead, you will train and coach volunteers in completing basic construction tasks and celebrate volunteer impact.

- As a Volunteer Coordinator, you will recruit, onboard, host orientations, fundraise and support volunteers.

- As a Supply & Logistics Coordinator, you will coordinate the operations of SBP’s warehouse and delivery system to ensure project sites have the tools and materials they need.

- As a Construction Coordinator, you will coordinate subcontractor schedules and monitor the progress of construction projects, ensuring proper permits are secured for each site.

- As a Client Services Coordinator you will serve as the point of contact and resource for the clients of SBP, assessing clients’ needs, provide referrals, and offer support throughout the application and rebuilding processes.

- As a Disaster Corps Project Lead you will support response efforts immediately following the impact of natural disasters. Project Leads who serve under SBP’s Disaster Corps will be the first on the ground to provide services to impacted vulnerable populations throughout the United States.


Construction experience is NOT required. If you’re committed to learning, passionate about serving others, have a strong work ethic, and enjoy leading volunteers, we need you on our team.
