SBP - Houston

Job Type: Other
Closing date: 03/31/2021

Help Southeast Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey while serving your community!

SBP is looking for passionate, service-minded individuals to join 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.

In Houston and New Orleans, AmeriCorps members may 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. With this work, SBP seeks to prevent future suffering for the most vulnerable by increasing the supply of storm-resilient, affordable homes. Building new homes in addition to repairing existing ones, SBP also helps communities achieve long-term recovery by building back neighborhoods destroyed by disaster. AmeriCorps members will gain valuable experience in how to redevelop neighborhoods and create housing that is affordable and resilient.

JOIN the SBP AmeriCorps team and serve 10 months 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 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.

Candidates without prior construction experience are still encouraged to apply. If you’re committed to learning, have a strong work ethic, and enjoy leading volunteers, we want you on our team.
