St. Bernard Project
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
Serving St Bernard, Orleans and Jefferson Parish, St Bernard Project (SBP) embraces an all-under-one-roof model, offering volunteer coordination, case management, mental health services, and construction. In August 2012-13, SBP's 65 AmeriCorps members will transition 150 residents into secure housing by leveraging 9,500 volunteers to rebuild homes. Fifteen of these members will participate in Veterans Corps, which engages veterans, active guardsmen and military spouses in national service.
