Families in Transition sends out multiple appeal letters each year, including the year-end appeal (formerly called the annual fund). We hope that you will consider donating to one or more of these important appeals each year.
Why do we send out more than one appeal? Families in Transition continues to need your support throughout the year. Your monthly, quarterly, or annual investment in our organization will enable us to continue our mission of providing homes and building hope. Thank you for your ongoing support!

For our first End of the Year Appeal letter, we share with you the journey of a single mother, Savannah, who is currently participating in the housing program at Families in Transition. Savannah was pursuing a career to provide for her family. Upon starting a new relationship, she soon found out she was pregnant and soon after her relationship turned violent. Savannah fled the abuse after she gave birth, and came to FIT with her two young children and newborn. They started in our Family Place Resource Center and Shelter as one of the first families to move in after its opening. Within a few months, Savannah and her children moved into their very own FIT apartment.
Our second End of the Year Appeal letter shares the story of Ari, a mother who, like Savannah, saw her once happy relationship turn to violence. Ari had married her best friend, had a stable job, and lived happily with her husband and 6 year old son. When her husband’s violence almost took her life she left with her son and entered a domestic violence shelter. They stayed in a one room unit and took turns sleeping on a couch and twin sized bed for five months until a spot opened up in the housing program at Families in Transition. Ari is back to work and educating people about domestic violence in an effort to get more of those in danger to leave and seek help.
