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.
Steve Thomas, Emmy Award-winning television personality and former host of the acclaimed home improvement shows This Old House and Renovation Nation, has partnered with Habitat for Humanity International to help raise awareness about the need for decent, affordable housing.
