*FIT VISTA Leader - Research & Reporting
The Families in Transition VISTA Program is focused on improving the quality of life for the most disadvantaged members in New Hampshire. Our efforts are led by a remarkable team of dedicated AmeriCorps*VISTA members from all over the country. Our capacity builder VISTAs are strategically placed with selected host sites that provide critical services, training and empowerment programs aimed at lifting residents up and out of the chains of poverty. Families in Transition (FIT) is a recognized nonprofit leader in providing affordable housing options and innovative programming for homeless families and individuals. With 20 properties (and growing) and over 200 housing units, FIT provides an array of housing options including emergency-short term shelter, to transitional housing, to permanent housing in Manchester, Concord, and Dover, NH. The need for the type of housing and services that Families in Transition offers is growing. Last year, we received over 5,000 requests for assistance and we were able to help and house 650 people half of whom were children. As a way to become more self-sustainable, Families in Transition has three entrepreneurial businesses where all the proceeds generated come back into supporting the agencies housing and services for the homeless. They include two thrift stores, OutFITters Thrift Store, in Manchester and Concord, as well as a commercial office cleaning company, FIT Cleaning Solutions, whose clients are located in and around the Manchester and Concord, NH areas. FIT is a multi-award winning, entrepreneurial, growing, medium-size organization that employs over 90 people at a variety of locations.
