To help rebuild Haiti click on this link Habitat for Humanity What a great organization!
Replacing destroyed homes
As soon as conditions on the ground realistically allow, Habitat will begin replacing destroyed homes using a core house model.

Permanent structures with room to grow

Core houses are small, but well-constructed and durable, permanent structures that carry the expectation of further expansion by the homeowner partner when circumstances permit. They are designed with such incremental expansion in mind.

Designed for a family of five

A core house generally involves flooring and a roof with a single room, a door and windows, plus provision for water and sanitation. The house complies with international humanitarian standards, providing adequate living space and sanitation facilities for the average Haitian family of five.

Help Habitat build core houses for Haitian families

Thousands of core houses will be needed, and Habitat is committed to building as many as funding allows. Estimated post-earthquake cost is about US$4,000 to US$6,000 per unit, depending on local conditions and design.
