The diverse array of housing options provided at Families in Transition does more than provide shelter for individuals and families who face homelessness. We also strive to provide our residents with a meaningful connection to their community and a true sense of home.

Spruce Street HousingOur residential buildings in ManchesterConcordDover, and Wolfeboro, New Hampshire house nearly 500 people on any given night. These refurbished historic sites and newly-built housing facilities are carefully planned and maintained with sustainable design principles. They offer clean, safe, affordable living to the many residents who come to call FIT home.

FIT provides an array of housing options to meet the diverse needs of homeless individuals and families.

FIT’s programming has been highly successful, enabling the vast majority of its participants to achieve stability and attain/maintain permanent housing. Over 80% of FIT participants move from Transitional Housing into Permanent Housing. In addition, over 85% of participants in Permanent Supportive Housing successfully maintain housing stability for six months or longer.

Coming Soon


Families in Transition, (FIT) was invited to come to Wolfeboro by concerned community members in order to provide transitional housing to local families in need of assistance. The need in Wolfeboro is immmediate; there are families in the area who are homeless, with no place to go. The purchase of the building is through private investment dollars. The Hope House, the only family transitional housing in the southern Lakes Region of Carroll County, will be a temporary, safe and secure place for families, with 24/7, onsite staff and video surveillance. Currently, there are 126 homeless children in the local school district and several dozen families without a place to live in Wolfeboro.  In addition to providing transitional housing to families experiencing homelessness, FIT will provide families with a number of essential services to help these families find permanent residence in their hometown, to break the cycle of homelessness. The goal is to assist families so that they can live, work and raise their children on their own.
