Description: Families in Transition – New Horizons is one of the largest homeless services organizations in New Hampshire with locations in Manchester, Concord, Dover and Wolfeboro. We provide innovative and effective interventions specifically designed to help homeless individuals and families reach beyond the cycle of homelessness to lead healthy and successful lives. Our belief is that having a home is a basic human right and is fundamental to becoming an engaged and contributing member of our community.

Families in Transition offers the following housing options in the City of Manchester:

Transitional Housing (52 units) for homeless single women and single mothers. Participants reside in independent housing units for 18-24 months, during which time they receive comprehensive supportive services to help them attain and maintain long term housing stability.

Permanent Supportive Housing (72 units) homeless single men, single women, single mothers with children, and single fathers with children.  Participants receive comprehensive social services enabling them to remain permanently housed.

Permanent Affordable Housing (36 units) for low- and moderate-income individuals and families. These units provide much needed affordable housing within the city.

Intermediary Housing  (11 units) for single women and single women with children in need of shelter while they wait for a Transitional or Permanent Supportive Housing unit to become available.

Emergency Family Shelter (11 bedrooms) The Family Place Resource Center and Shelter opened in January 2016 and is the only emergency family shelter in Manchester.
