CONCORD, NH — The New Hampshire Association for Justice, a statewide organization of trial attorneys who work to protect people who have been harmed by the wrongful acts of others, raised more than $6,000 at their recent Holiday Party Silent Auction for the benefit of Families in Transition, a Manchester, Concord, and Dover, NH, based homeless services provider, according to a press statement. Families in Transition is a nonprofit organization that provides safe, affordable housing and social services to individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, enabling them to gain self-sufficiency and respect. FIT also owns and operates OutFITters Thrift Store in Manchester and Concord, which serve as economic engines to help pay for services that FIT provides.

“The New Hampshire Association for Justice is delighted to have been able to raise these funds for such a worthy organization as Families in Transition,” said NHAJ President Anna Goulet Zimmerman, a lawyer with the Manchester, NH, law firm of Manning & Zimmerman. “We hope that our contribution helps Families in Transition by providing more housing options to those in need around the state.”

Michele Talwani, the vice president, marketing and economic development, of FIT said the org was grateful for the generosity and support.

“Their donation will go a long way in helping us to bring much needed services to homeless families and individuals,” she added. “We are honored to have been selected as the recipient for this incredible fund raising event.”
