Landlords: Your support and involvement are the keys to their success!

Private market rentals are the prime housing option for participating families. At FIT we work with struggling families to identify the problems that led to their housing instability. Through the use of intensive assessments and individualized housing stability plans we are able to work with participating families to improve their situation and help them regain their self-sufficiency.

When you rent to one of our families you are giving back to the community, as well as gaining a great tenant at the same time.

Please help us reach our goal of housing stability for 100 families.
