Families In Transition
Augusta Transitional Housing for Teen Parents
What is the Families in Transition Program
The FIT program provides support services and education to tenants in KVCAPâ€™s Augusta Transitional House. This house has three individual apartment units, two of which are handicap accessible.
The Augusta T-house is specifically designed for teen parents, through age 22, who meet the following criteria:
- Homeless or in danger of becoming homeless.
- Low income (1/2 of the median income for Kennebec County).
- Teen parents under age 18 must be legally emancipated.
Tenants work with a case manager identifying their needs and setting goals that move them toward independent living.
