dc.description.abstractHabitat for Humanity International has established itself as the leading non-profit, residential builder. The organization’s goal, to eliminate poverty housing, is achieved through both new construction and rehabilitation, although there is an inherent preference towards new construction. Rehabilitation is a proven affordable housing tool; its benefits warrant the realization of an expanded rehabilitation program by Habitat for Humanity International. Through the analysis of a survey of Habitat affiliates, this thesis identifies the level of rehabilitation activity employed by the organization. The primary barriers to rehabilitation, encountered by Habitat for Humanity affiliates, are identified. In conclusion, a set of recommendations to ameliorate these barriers is discussed.
