BENEFITING: The St Bernard Project Inc
Over the past five years, the St. Bernard Project has worked with more than 34,000 volunteers from around the world to help rebuild more than 390 homes. Currently, SBP is working on 50 houses, has a waiting list of 130 families, and receives five to ten applications for assistance each week. SBP’s under-one-roof construction model also creates jobs for veterans in skilled trades and operates a clinic that provides free high-quality mental health services so that residents can rebuild not only their homes, but also their lives. SBP helps good people, who’ve done things right, but who have hit barriers such as contractor fraud, problems with the federal Road Home assistance program, or additional tragedies, who are not able to return home. This is an event running until September 6h organized and is marked by the 24 hour build August 28th to 29th to commemorate when Hurricane Katrina caused great devastation to New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf Coast region.
