City of Watsonville Procolomation- Families In Transition Day ! 


I’d like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the City of Watsonville for not only proclaiming September 24th as Families In Transition Day but, also for Mayor Oscar Rios’s personal presentation of the Proclamation.  I can’t tell you how much it meant to the staff, Board and community members who comprise the FIT family to be present for that moment of recognition. It will be a moment we carry in our hearts forever as we work with our community partners to end and prevent family homelessness in Santa Cruz County.

Your support and involvement are the keys to 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, individualized housing stability plans and a strong focus on skill development, FIT program participants make excellent candidates for your rental. Please contact us to discuss housing opportunities ! In the past year we helped over 200 local families to secure housing in the community
