Volunteers are at the heart of the Families in Transition – New Horizons family. They play a vital role in helping us provide needed support for homeless individuals and families.
FIT provides many different opportunities to its volunteers. In addition to individual volunteers and interns, we welcome group efforts and are happy to organize special projects to accommodate your religious organization, school, leisure club, or business group.
