About Our Services
Families in Transition (FIT) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1991 in response to the growing number of homeless individuals and families in Manchester and throughout the state of New Hampshire. 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.
Families in Transition’s unique combination of quality, affordable housing and services has been recognized both statewide and nationally as one of the most effective ways to end homelessness. Remaining on the forefront of research and innovation in homeless services, the Families in Transition model empowers homeless individuals and families to lead healthy, happy and productive lives.
The diverse array of housing options provided at Families in Transition does more than provide shelter for individuals and families who face homelessness. Our residential buildings in Manchester, Concord, and Dover New Hampshire house more than 180 individuals and families on any given night. They offer clean, safe, affordable living to the many residents who come to call FIT home.
At FIT, we provide not only the time and place to recover from homelessness, but also the support to help participants overcome the root causes of their homelessness. Clinical staff provide a wide range of programs and services to help participants develop the successful tools that lead to economic and emotional independence and self-sufficiency.
We offer specialized services in two main areas:
