St. Bernard Project was created in March of 2006 by Zack Rosenburg and Liz McCartney. Since it was founded, SBP has been tirelessly addressing the physical, emotional, and psychological devastation of survivors of Hurricane Katrina, and more recently, the disastrous Gulf oil spill. The St. Bernard Project counts over 24,000 people from across the country among its volunteers, and together they have constructed or rebuilt hundreds of homes for families in need, providing them not only with places to live, but with the psychological counseling sometimes necessary to return to a life they once knew…even better!
