While volunteers are at the heart of the Families in Transition family, they are so very vital to OutFITters Thrift Stores. As 100% of the profits from the stores go directly into the FIT programs that help homeless individuals and families, keeping the store stocked and running smoothly is essential for the success of all our programs. We rely on many individuals and corporations who donate their time and efforts to help in our stores. 

In NH, A volunteer hour is valued at $23.79.

In 2016, OutFITters had 18,964 volunteer hours!

These hours add up to a savings of $444,731 for Families in Transition.

This amount of money can provide safe housing for 21 families for an entire year.
