FIT - New Horizons, Manchester
Before you dive into this charrette report, which contains a summary of the recommendations made by the Plan NH team members, we want to preface this by talking about people who don’t have a place to live – the population being served by Families in Transition-New Horizons (FIT-NH).

Why Did Plan NH Come to FIT NH in Manchester?
Families in Transition-New Horizons (FIT-NH) requested assistance from Plan NH to redevelop the existing New Horizons facility and reimagine the surrounding neighborhood to better serve the shelter guests and the shelter’s neighbors. The mission of FIT-NH 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.
