Now is the time! It has been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and displaced thousands of families. We are at the half-way point of a 20-year recovery and we need your help to finish the job. St. Bernard Project works with families who lost their homes to Katrina and do not have the resources to rebuild. We focus on low- to moderate income families with small children, the elderly, the disabled and veterans. 70% of our clients are victims of contractor fraud with no recourse to get their money back. 75% of our clients are disabled and the average age is 64 years old. Our solution is using volunteers as our labor force and AmeriCorps members as our field workers. Our biggest barrier to rebuilding is funding. We believe this is a solvable problem. With your donation, you can be part of the solution.
