Introduction: Housing as one of the real phenomena of the human issues that have always been struggling with it. And always trying to change and to respond, it is reasonable for. House is therefore a necessary but not any housing, what is the ideal man, is access to good quality housing. Furthermore, housing in rural areas, in addition to answering the need for security and privacy of home and family, circle of village-based production system and mutually linked with it. The quality of housing in all housing has traditionally been considered. In this context, housing, as well as their socio-economic status is considered. So we can say that housing is one of the factors affecting the quality of life. Quality of life is a multidimensional and complex concept. Some see it as welfare, social welfare, happiness, satisfaction, and some of these have been interpreted as described Yet sadly, About half of the world’s population is poor and approximately 600 to 800 million people living in non-standard housing. Because Place they lacked the necessary security and infrastructure and facilities, and wastewater utilities and are also exposed to numerous hazards. In order to resolve this gap in the late twentieth century the major solutions to this problem was raised that one of the strategies that organizations or charities (NGO) in the world. In the example of Iran, is Imam Khomeini Relief Committee (RA).This research investigated the role of charitable relief in the physical improvement of rural housing is Iran.

The average number of positive ratings and a significant level of state ntervention to cover the cost of coverage are good. Level significantly lower than the mean level. Wilcoxon test showed that the mean differences were significant. This means that because of the better coverage than before the process is Low but significant levels out, indicating the fact that it is true that the committee on physical improvements in rural housing clients Kandovan effective but not enough to be a concern in this case is forthcoming.
Conclusion: Quality of construction materials used in the manufacture of steel and concrete housing units has increased in recent decades. Residential treatment facilities and services such as electricity, water, gas and telephone are also increased during this period. This change reflects the improvement in the quality and quantity of housing in rural areas during the last decades. Housing was a major consideration in the Development Plan.The application of NGOs and charitable organizations would strengthen the degree of care and attention has been urban and rural housing.The results show that the Relief Committee for all variables in the physical condition of housing leads to significant changes in their clients is covered. Physical improvements to residential clients in the cover before it are up. So that after coverage of the number of units built in 1387 to accommodate the number of patients was 97 which the number of years before the establishment of the committee The Kandovan was not beyond from Number 14. In recent years, about 72 of housing for clients by the committee, the Housing bonyad is underway. Repair and reconstruction of housing units in 31 patients in 1387 and by funds such as loans and mortgages Qrzalhsnh or repairs have been done by the committee. In addition to the above, committee work, and grant a power meter extension and construction of new housing, gas and water
And somewhat older houses patients since 1377, has taken over. The number of branches has increased from 151 in 1377 to 1387. Share in 1387, is 75. Size from 40 m to 60 m range and base units. Usually unaccompanied patients 40 meters and 60 meters for the rest. Report has been obtained from the Statistical Yearbook committee and compare it with the results of statistical data analysis can be concluded that the physical condition of housing significantly different than that of patients covered. And patients were satisfied with the physical quality of housing built in committee, so we can reject the hypothesis H0 in favor of H1 and Committee actions to improve the physical condition of housing is covered by the client. But these measures are not enough.
