Families in Transition strives to provide our residents with a meaningful connection to their community and a true sense of home. We offer clean, safe, affordable living to the many residents who come to call FIT home.
In 2017, Families in Transition purchased a property at 16/18 Lehner St., in Wolfeboro, NH. We were invited to come to Wolfeboro by concerned community members in order to provide temporary housing and services to the families in the Governor Wentworth School District. The Hope House will provide short-term, emergency housing for up to seven families at a time. Services provided by FIT will include 24/7 on-site staff to address specific needs for each family, such as transportation, case management, meals and employment. The average length of stay will be 60 days until family transitions to more permanent housing. It is anticipated to house 43 parents and 84 children per year.
Construction on the property will be finished in June. Families in the Governor Wentworth School District experiencing homelessness will have access to Hope House starting in the summer of 2018. For more information about Hope House email us at [email protected].
Suit Up the Hope House!
We have created a registry that outlines everything we will need in order to suit up and open the doors of the Hope House. Items include bedding, dishes, basic needs and so much more. Please visit our registry by clicking here. If you don’t see anything on this registry you’d like to purchase, you can always make a monetary donation to the Hope House on our website www.fitnh.org/donate. If you would like additional information, please contact our Resource Development Office at [email protected].
Lend a hand!
Currently, we’re in need of volunteers to help us get the Hope House up and running for families to move in once we are open. Once the program is full, we will be looking to our community to help volunteer in many different programs created to help support the families. If you are interested in volunteering, please email our Volunteer Office at [email protected] or call 603.641.9441 ext. 357.
