We are currently selecting members for the following positions to begin serving in these disaster impacted areas starting June and September.
Project Leads are the voice and face of SBP out in the field. These members lead groups
of skilled and unskilled volunteers in construction projects on our clients’ homes, engaging with
diverse groups of people on a daily basis. A Project Lead is responsible for providing training to
our volunteers, maintaining a safe and clean worksite, monitoring safety and quality and ensuring
that all tasks are completed on schedule. Project Leads are provided a 6 week training in the
field of construction so no skill set is required but preferred.
Supply & Logistics Coordinator
Supply & Logistics Coordinators are the backbone of our construction department. Under the
supervision of the Warehouse Manager these coordinators ensure that each job site is properly
stocked so that our trades teams, project managers and Project Leads have what they need
when they need it.
Construction Coordinators ensure construction sites are provided and tracked with necessary tools and materials on time and accurately so that our Project Managers and Project Leads have what they need when they need it. They manage subcontractors, secure building permits, and schedule building inspections.
Client Services Coordinator
A Client Service Coordinator is an advocate and liaison to SBP’s clients from application to
completion of construction and move-in while working with clients to remove barriers to their
recovery. As the sole point of contact for our clients, Client Services Coordinator foster strong
relationships and educate homeowners on SBP’s mission and policies.
Volunteer Coordinators support SBP’s mission by creating an extraordinary volunteer experience
that gets people excited about continuing their engagement with SBP. Volunteer Coordinators will
build relationships with volunteers before their trip, welcome them when they are on their trip, and
