PROJECT REBIRTH INC

Rating: 4.5 stars   2 reviews

Issues: Arts & Culture, Mental Health

Location: 163 William Street, 4th Floor New York NY 10038 USA

Mission: Project Rebirth is a film chronicle of the strength of the human spirit coping with disaster: the aftermath of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center. As a feature-length documentary combining 35 MM time lapse film photography of the rebuilding of Ground Zero with the intimate stories of nine people coping post 9/11, Rebirth is the only living record of the minute-by-minute rebuilding of the WTC site and the only long term public film record of nine people dealing with grief and trauma. It will be a key component of the National September 11Memorial & Museum and serve as the basis for a range of cutting edge teaching and learning tools for educational, training and therapeutic programs.
Programs: The major effort of Project Rebirth is to document the rebuilding through a high quality documentary film, employing time-lapse images archived over a ten-year period.

I have been involved with Rebirth for years and have given time and money to this cause. We have the opportunity to bring good things into the world, using lessons learned from something horrendous and evil. I am so proud of the work of Jim Whitaker and the whole Rebirth team and ask you please to take the time to learn more about Rebirth's mission and strategy to achieve it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watched young people in leading universities learn about 9/11 and our ability to cope with trauma

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more people aware of what they could be doing now to help in their own communities

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Making something very good from something very awful

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Highly focused, professional, and dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a huge difference in communities ability to be prepared for major disasters and to rover more quickly after they occur

Ways to make it better...

We had more resources to seize the wealth of opportunities to help now

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Balancing resources with ambitions

One thing I'd also say is that...

The more you learn about Rebirth the more you understand that we have discovered an urgent need that can be addressed with a relatively small amount of resource relative to the impact
