Fair Tide

In 1998, as housing costs in the Seacoast rose a small, committed group of local citizens were concerned for their neighbors, family, and friends who were homeless or were at risk of becoming homeless. They established Fair Tide as a way to help. They fundraised, advocated, and acted and in 2003 they opened the doors to a newly renovated five-unit home in the Kittery Foreside and the Fair Tide two-year Transitional Housing Program was born. In concert with the home, the Fair Tide Thrift Store came to fruition as a fundraising mechanism for the program, as well as a resource to the residents and the greater Seacoast community.

Article from Portsmouth Herald, 2002 marking the start of construction on the Fair Tide house.

Over the past 15 years Fair Tide has served more than 100 individuals through the Transitional Housing Program providing not only a safe, warm place to call home but also working together with the residents to offer case management, guidance, and support.  We have moved more than 80% of those residents into long-term housing.

 

In 2018 in light of economical and political changes, as well as shifts in trends and evidence-based practices in the field of housing, Fair Tide re-evaluated the transitional housing model. We realized that in order to best provide the long-term stability necessary for success we needed to provide permanent housing coupled with ongoing, targeted case management support. So as Fair Tide celebrates 20 years of service to our residents, alumni, and Seacoast community, we look forward to growing with those who need us.
