    The Pikes Peak Interagency Transition Team was created in 1992 when transition services were mandated by the State, and transition coordinators needed to tell families what resources were available. The PPITT has evolved so that agencies and providers can stay updated, connected and to network. PPITT also publishes an annual resource directory and hosts an annual resource fair. In addition, PPITT has a listserv where events, etc. are posted and forwarded by members.
