ORG Bahamas Foundation

The Organization for Responsible Governance (ORG) serves as a bridge uniting stakeholders from a diverse cross-section of society in pursuit of a common vision: a thriving Bahamas where accountable and transparent governance allows each individual, business and group a say in decisions that affect our future and equal access to opportunity. We believe that responsible governance can only be achieved if all sectors of society: the people, private industry, civil society and government all have a seat at the table in deciding the future of the country. ORG seeks to empower civil society and the people to take a greater stake in the governance of the country through generating dialogue and education. In tandem with partners like Citizens for a Better Bahamas, The Nassau Institute, and Citizens for a Better Bahamas, ORG galvanizes civil society groups around issues of mutual interest, fosters collective action, and encourages capacity-building and development in advocacy groups.

The St Bernard Project (SBP)
The St Bernard Project (SBP)

SBP was founded in March 2006 by Zack Rosenburg and Liz McCartney after the couple, who originally lived in Washington, D.C., volunteered in Louisiana’s St. Bernard Parish following Hurricane Katrina. The parish, located just outside of New Orleans, was rendered 100% uninhabitable by Katrina’s floodwaters. Seeing the inefficiency and unbearably slow progress of the institutional - or “traditional” rebuilding process, but inspired by the residents' collective spirit and fierce determination to rebuild, Zack and Liz launched SBP to help them achieve their recovery goals. With the tremendous support of donors, volunteers and corporate partners, SBP has grown from a three-person volunteer team into a national organization, recognized as a leader in disaster resilience and recovery, whose mission is to shrink time between disaster and recovery. SBP seeks to achieve its mission via five interventions: -Rebuild homes quickly after disasters by mobilizing private sector innovations and assigning a single point of contact to make the home rebuilding process faster and more predictable. -Share rebuilding innovations with other rebuilding organizations to allow for efficient, predictable recovery on a national scale. -Prepare home and business owners prior to and following disaster with specific steps to mitigate risk and improve resilience. -Advise policy makers immediately after a disaster so they can deploy federal dollars sooner, and in a way that empowers an efficient recovery. -Advocate for the reform of disaster recovery strategies in the U.S. to improve the predictability and speed of recovery. 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. Since 2006, SBP has directly rebuilt homes for more than 1,200 families with the help of more than 150,000 volunteers in New Orleans, LA; Joplin, MO; Staten Island, NY; Rockaway, NY; Monmouth/Ocean Counties, NJ; San Marcos, TX; Columbia, SC; White Sulphur Springs, WV and Baton Rouge, LA.
