Service is the driving principle of Team Rubicon operations and our members.

Team Rubicon focuses on serving vulnerable and at-risk populations affected by disaster. While the initial damage and trauma of natural disasters will impact any population regardless of socio-economic factors, the financial burden of recovery and rebuilding has dramatic and long-lasting repercussions on many rural and urban populations lacking proper insurance and public and private resources.

All Team Rubicon services are provided free of charge.

In 2016, 62 percent of all homes Team Rubicon serviced did not have home insurance. An American Progress report noted that the most extreme weather events typically harmed counties with household incomes below the U.S. median annual income of $51,941. Wildfires, tornadoes, and severe thunderstorms devastated areas with households that earned on average three percent less than the U.S. median income. It is easy to imagine the positive, long-term impact Team Rubicon’s free assistance provided to these families.


Homeowner Impact

Dolores G., Baton Rouge

By focusing on the individual homeowners first, Team Rubicon ensures the overall community can recover faster.

We bought the house in 1976 and were one of the first ones on the street. My husband was in the Navy and served on the sub that caught the Germans off the coast of Africa. Ever since he passed away I’ve been living her by myself. This is our third flood. The first two were 18” but this time it was almost up to the ceiling. I don’t know what we would have done without Team Rubicon. You saved the day.
