Families in Transition
Families in Transition (FIT) is a transitional housing program dedicated to providing transitional housing and support to homeless families and their children fleeing domestic violence. Our FIT families receive counseling, housing, life skills, parenting skills, job readiness training, budgeting guidance and more. An Agape social worker helps each participant develop a personal case plan. These plans are designed to help identify strengths and achieve success. FIT provides support and networks with other agencies to provide services to participants which will help lead them toward self-sufficient living.
-Last year alone, we served 266 homeless and imminently homeless individuals
-In the past two years, not a single family has returned to homelessness
-No child has entered foster care, and every child was promoted to the next grade level
