The earthquake in Haiti had a devastating impact, having claimed over 200,000 lives and displacing an estimated 1.2 million people. As immediate relief efforts focus on providing temporary shelter, medicine, food and water there is looming the monumental task of rebuilding a nation that was already plagued with structural deficiencies. The effort to rebuild safe, affordable housing for Haiti’s homeless will require significant resources and the collective energy and will of people committed to serving families in need. The New York City Housing Authority, providing over 400,000 low income New Yorkers with affordable, safe public housing and rental assistance programs stands poised to answer the call for assistance. NYCHA together with Habitat for Humanity, which is addressing shelter solutions for low-income families affected by the Haiti earthquake, the Authority will draw on the expertise and strength of dedicated residents and employees to help transform a nation. Through a unique effort that builds on their existing partnership focused on housing revitalization and renovation initiatives at Authority developments, NYCHA and Habitat will join forces to assist in the rebuilding of Haiti.
