Families in Transition – New Horizons (FIT), a nonprofit organization located in Manchester, Concord and Dover, New Hampshire, was founded in 1991 in response to the growing number of homeless individuals and families in the greater Manchester area and throughout the state. Since its inception, FIT has been committed to providing only the most innovative, and effective interventions specifically designed to help homeless individuals and families reach beyond the cycle of homelessness to lead healthy and successful lives. Our belief is that having a home is a basic human right and is fundamental to becoming an engaged and contributing member of our community.
In 2016, we:
- Provided housing and social services to 681 individuals, half of whom were children.
- Provided substance use treatment to 212 women at our Family Willows Substance Use Treatment Center.
- Served 25,766 meals at our Family Place Resource Center and Shelter.
