May 14, 2010, SBP celebrates the completion of Ms. Elzey's home and AmeriCorps Week

Yesterday, St. Bernard Project celebrated the completion of Amelia Elzey’s home at 2518 Deers St. New Orleans, LA in honor of AmeriCorps week. Throughout the week, AmeriCorps members, alumni, program partners and volunteers from across the country have united in service by volunteering with St. Bernard Project. St. Bernard Project contribute more than 1,000 hours of service to national AmeriCorps Week!

St. Bernard Project is one of many Louisiana nonprofit organizations that has made a significant impact in the community thanks to our partnership with AmeriCorps programs. Since 2006, SBP has hosted more than 21,000 dedicated volunteers who have molded, mudded, drywalled, floored and painted 276 homes for families of the New Orleans area. Many of these volunteers have been supervised and trained by AmeriCorps members at SBP. In addition, more than 35 AmeriCorps NCCC teams have worked with SBP, many of whom decided to come back and stay at St. Bernard Project as an AmeriCorps VISTA or State member. Overall, more than 130 AmeriCorps State and VISTA members have dedicated their time and tireless efforts to rebuilding families’ homes at SBP.
