Mission Statement

Need for Services


The vision of Fisher Transitional Services is to see these young people succeed in the financial, residential, educational, and vocational areas of their lives and become productive by giving back to the community.

Fisher Transitional Services, Inc. conducts business as an employer and service provider in compliance with all federal and state anti-discrimination acts, laws, rules and regulations. FTS does not discriminate as an employer or service provider on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, marital status, or disability.


The services offered by Fisher Transitional Services were developed in response to the growing need of youths leaving the foster care system to embark on adulthood without similar support services being offered in the adult system. Based on experience in both the Child and Adult systems, it became clear that there is a need for these types of services for many individuals ages 18-25 years old, not just those leaving foster care. Many young adults lack proper guidance in learning the skills necessary to succeed in the adult world. 

Fisher Transitional Services, Inc. is a non profit agency serving young adults, ages 18 to 25, in New Castle County, Delaware.

Community Service

Our mission at Fisher Transitional Services (FTS) is to provide support services to young adult individuals, ages 18 to 25, in order to enhance their ability to become independent, functional members of society.  As guided by our dedicated board, consumer input and the changing needs of our community, Fisher Transitional Services provides targeted support in the areas of education, vocation, housing and finance.  Information and referral services are also provided.  

We believe that the future and well being of our society depends on the successful transition of our young people into adulthood.  Our goal is to fill the gap that is so often created during the transition between services for children and adults. 

As a faith based organization, it is the philosophy of this agency to operate according to Biblical principles while serving the needs of this population.
