FITS is currenly looking for new board members! We are an active 501c3 Non-Profit organization. Board members all volunteer throughout the year on different projects. There are a few weeks of the year that require more hours than the rest of the year...usually around Christmas time, the Spring & Fall Fundraiser and During the month of August for our Back to School Supply Drive.
The work is light. It is sorting or shopping, or mailing items, shopping for food and clothing, contacting families and donors...things of that nature.
We do have a monthly meeting where we have to discuss the business items of the month. This is also when we do all of our planning, budgeting, etc. If you are interested in helping out a great organization within the Dells Community or If you have a special skill set that you think you could bring to the organization, we would love to hear from you!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! THANKS!

Families-In-Transition Support (FITS) Network was established as a collaborative effort between the Wisconsin Dells School District and Beacon House as a result of the needs of homeless and low-income children. FITS was launched in 2009 under Beacon House, the organization was re-ignited in July of 2011 when it was brought to our attention by Holly Waterman, a newly elected School Board Member, that there was a significant number of homeless and “food-insecure” students in the district that needed help.
