Overview / About F.I.T.
If you lost your housing due to economic hardship, natural disaster, or other similar reason, and are living temporarily with friends or relatives, or in shelter, motel, vehicle, or campground; or on the street; in an abandoned building, then you are eligible to receive services provided under the McKinney-Vento Act. The Families in Transition Program offered through Leon County Schools can help you connect with services to help you through this difficult time.
To learn more about the FIT program please see the attached brochure below.
If you are not personally impacted by economic hardship, but know someone that is, please share this information with them so we can help. If you have any additional questions please contact Michael Hightower by telephone at (850) 487-7226 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org .
To Report Abuse Call DCF Hotline at 1-800-692-2873.
