Funding to Provide Housing and Services to Homeless Families and Individuals in New Hampshire
MANCHESTER, NH – Families in Transition (FIT), a Manchester, Concord and Dover, NH, based homeless services provider, received a $27,500 donation from Grappone Automotive Group through the Community Development Finance Authority’s (CDFA) Tax Credit Program. The funding will enable FIT to continue to provide housing and social services to people experiencing homelessness in the Granite State.
“We are grateful to be able to team up with FIT through the CDFA to provide much needed resources for our fellow Granite Staters,” said Amanda Osmer, Owner, Grappone Automotive Group. “It is our hope that the work being done by Families in Transition will allow good people to get back on track so they can regain their health and wholeness, and give back to society in a positive way.”
“Thankfully, Grappone has, once again, supported us in continuing our mission of providing a home and hope to those experiencing homelessness in a really big way,” commented Maureen Beauregard, President of Families in Transition. “Last year alone, we received over five thousand requests for housing and we were able to provide just over 10 percent of these people with housing and services. So, this funding is essential to our efforts as it helps to defray the costs of the services that we provide.”
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 Stores in Manchester and Concord, NH, which serve as economic engines to help pay for services that FIT provides.
