Case Manager

Families in Transition – New Horizons

The mission of Families in Transition – New Horizons-New Horizons is to provide hunger relief, emergency shelter, safe affordable housing, and supportive services to individuals and families who are homeless or in need, enabling them to gain self-sufficiency and respect.

Founded as a nonprofit organization in 1991, Families in Transition – New Horizons was formed as a response to the growing number of homeless individuals and families in Manchester and throughout the state of New Hampshire. Since its inception, FIT has been committed to providing only the most innovative and effective programming to help homeless individuals and families reach beyond the cycle of homelessness and lead healthy and successful lives. We believe that having a home is a basic human right and a fundamental component of becoming an engaged and contributing member of the community.

FIT’s unique combination of quality, affordable housing, and services has been recognized statewide and nationally as one of the most effective ways to end homelessness. Remaining on the forefront of research and innovation in homeless services, the Families in Transition – New Horizons model empowers homeless individuals and families to lead healthy, happy, and productive lives.

The Board of Directors of Families in Transition – New Horizons and New Horizons have voted to merge both organizations into one, effective January 1, 2018. This strength-based merger will help best serve the individuals and families in our community who are most in need.
