Lincoln Financial Foundation Awards Families in Transition $5,000

Concord – Families in Transition (FIT), a Manchester and Concord-based homeless services provider, recently received a $5,000 grant from Lincoln Financial Foundation. This grant will help fund the “essential basket” program, which provides basic necessities for homeless individuals and families in Concord, NH when they move into FIT housing. Because new residents are homeless when they move into housing that FIT provides, most do not have basic household items. FIT’s “essential basket” program allows participants to move into an apartment with household items necessary for day-to-day living such as a bed, dishes, blankets, and cleaning supplies.
