What is the Bernard Project?
The mission of the St. Bernard Project is to create housing opportunities so that Hurricane Katrina survivors can return to their homes and communities. SBP has established a Volunteer Driven Rebuilding Program, an Opportunity Housing Program, a Good Work Good Pay (GWGP) Program and a Center for Wellness and Mental Health. An average home rebuilding process takes numerous volunteers, 12 weeks and $20,000. In the wake of the oil spill, proceeds will also go toward assisting local fishermen with job placement and mental health services.
