Toyota Partners with St. Bernard Project (SBP) in New Orleans to Lend a Helping Hand
by Kristin Shaw
We had the great fortune to interview Elizabeth Egle from St. Bernard Project (SBP) at the Houston Auto Show. Learn about what Toyota and SBP are doing to help hurricane victims in the interview from our Facebook page!
From the SBP site:
SBP’s model is greatly enhanced by AmeriCorps members from all over the country who serve as client case managers, volunteer coordinators and construction site supervisors, overseeing the labor of more than 25,000 volunteers annually at SBP operations around the U.S.
With its construction system enhanced and optimized through an ongoing partnership with Toyota, which helped implement lean manufacturing processes, SBP rebuilds homes far below market rate, and carries out construction projects with much lower subsidies than traditional affordable housing models.
