Families in Transition

Providing a home. Building hope.


2018 Goals:

In order to meet the growing need for the type of housing and programming that Families in Transition provides, the organization is growing its locations, services and programming. The expansion to Wolfeboro, NH, will provide seven families experiencing homelessness in the Governor Wentworth School District a safe, temporary place to call home until a longer term housing solution can be found for each family. In addition, its Family Willow’s Substance Use Treatment Center is expanding and moving into the soon-to-be renovated second and third floors of the Manchester Recovery and Treatment Center on Wilson Street in Manchester. This expansion will also include recovery housing for women, with and without children. For more information, visit fitnh.org.
