Disaster Relief

Our initial call to serve was Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief. We have over 18 years of revitalizing communities in the Greater Louisiana area, especially dealing with the impact of climate instability that has plagued the region. Serving communities during these times has helped us better understand how to address the need as a whole and learn from their strength that, with support, they can grow and thrive. As a result, we expand our programs to promote sustainability and development, but the heart of our work remains in ensuring that no one should feel abandoned during a time of loss.

BBI has been active in helping during the following states of Emergency:

Hurricane Katrina Relief

In 2005, the great city of New Orleans was in a serious disaster. They were devastated by Hurricane Katrina; people lost their lives, homes, places of worship, and livelihoods.  We took up the call to become emergency first responders. We swiftly went in and did an assessment of the damage. We found displaced people and a community in despair, and immediately began to galvanize our resources. In the following months we worked to repair homes, places of worship, and peoples lives. We renovated and ensured working conditions for over 300 places of worship.

Baton Rouge Flood

After the 2016 Flood in Baton Rouge, we coordinated the delivery and implementation of clean-up projects, including collecting and distributing much-needed supplies and clothing drives to families who lost everything during the flood. In addition, we provided case management services to assist families to find reputable, professional, and affordable licensed contractors. We restored the homes of 50 homeowners by connecting them with qualified contractors.

Hurricane Laura 

After Hurricane Laura in 2020, we coordinated several food drives and emergencies for families impacted by the flood resulting from the natural disaster. We were able to aid over 1500 families in their time of need. 

COVID-19 Pandemic

After the Covid-19 pandemic, we partnered with Governor John Bel Edwards, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, Louisiana National Guard, and SDV Healthcare to coordinate a vaccination drive in rural parishes of East Baton Rouge.
