Not long after an earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010, Habitat set a five-year goal of serving 50,000 families through 2015. To date, Habitat's earthquake recovery program, including emergency shelter kits, structural damage assessments, repairs and rehabs, and transitional and upgradable shelters, has benefited more than 28,000 families — approximately 140,000 individuals.
