We Are....

Fairhaven Recovery Homes, a non-profit, Christ centered organization that provides an affordable, structured housing environment for those seeking recovery from the terrible disease of addiction and may have also experienced an addiction related trauma of incarceration. We have onsite Mentors that strive to maintain a safe, comfortable, peaceful and healthy environment for both, the residents as well as neighborhoods and the community at large. 

All Fairhaven members/residents, less those physically or mentally disabled, either work, or go to school. Housing for this class of handicapped persons is of a paramount concern, which affects their ability to return to society as functioning individuals, as well as the long term health and growth of American society as a whole. Without organizations such as Fairhaven Recovery Homes, the overall safety and growth of our society would be placed at a far greater risk of increased crime, unemployment, homelessness and decay. 

Without the prior fears of discriminatory and other illegal housing practices, we are able to provide the type of structured housing needed in the form of structured "family" type living arrangements. This dramatically increases ones' success rate in remaining clean, legally unencumbered and successful.

Our continued goal is to consistently love, as well as live in harmony with our members, our neighbors, local communities and society as a whole. We strive for excellence, in our ability to provide support for the treatment of the disease of addiction, assist in keeping our neighborhoods safe from crime, as well as providing a drug and alcohol free environment that is tempered with compassion, for ALL concerned. 

Fairhaven Recovery Homes was established in early 2008 and we continually strive to grow and manage more homes in order to help others. Additionally Fairhaven Recovery Homes has numerous supporters in the Public, Private and Religious sectors of society. Our affiliations and supporters are at once varied, diverse and represent an excellent cross section of our community and society. They include landlords, treatment facilities such as CODA Inc. and Life Works both in the Portland-Metro area, who work with us and our members closely.

Governmental/Community supporters include, The Washington County Reentry Council, Bridges to Change, the Washington County Mentors for Bridges to Change and the Prison Fellowship Program. Community/Religious supporters are Tigard Covenant Church and Trinity Church.

All of whom provide excellent support and testimonials of our good works and efforts to help the communities be safer and healthier.

We wish to invite you to explore the opportunities for a new life in sobriety, which can be found through our homes, and speak with us personally. In this way you can see what we are doing, how we are doing it and understand more fully what we provide recovering individuals and our communities.

Fairhaven feels that our vision provides you, as well as our organization an opportunity to help yourself as well as others. We are excited with each new opportunity to grow and help others, and look forward to speaking with you so that you may understand what our homes can do to help society and yourself, by being involved with recovery.

Declaration Of Spiritual Strength Through Christ Jesus

For

Fairhaven Recovery Homes

 

We are the children of the living God. We are heirs of God, joint heirs with Jesus Christ. We are a new creation in Jesus; old things have passed away and all things have become new. We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. We are not under guilt or condemnation. We refuse discouragement, because it is not the will of God. God is the God of encouragement. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. We do not listen to Satan’s accusations for he is a liar, the father of lies. We gird up our loins with truth. Sin does not have dominion over us.

 

We flee from temptation but if we do sin, we have an advocate with the Father who is Jesus Christ. We confess our sins and forsake them, and God is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We are cleansed by the blood of the Lamb. We are over comers,  because of the blood of Jesus Christ and the word of our testimony. No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper, and we shall confute every tongue that rises up against us in judgment. Our minds are renewed by the word of God.

 

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. We cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ. We bring every thought captive into obedience to the truth. We are accepted in the Beloved. Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world. Nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. We are not slaves of sin, but of righteousness. We continue in His Word. We know the truth and the truth sets us free. Because Christ has set us free, we are free indeed. We have been delivered out of the domain of darkness and are now abiding in the kingdom of God.

 

We are not intimidated by the enemy’s lies. He is defeated. For this purpose Christ came into the world, to destroy the works of the evil one. We submit to God and resist the devil. The enemy flees from us in terror, because the Lord live mightily in us. We give the devil no opportunity. We give no place to fear in our lives. God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power and of sound mind. Terror shall not come near us, because the Lord is the strength of our lives and He causes us to triumph in Christ Jesus. In Christ, we are the head and not the tail. We are above and not beneath. A thousand shall fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand and none shall touch us. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places, far above all principalities and powers. We have been given power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure us. No longer will the enemy oppress us.

 

We defeat him by the authority that Christ has given us. We are more than conquerors through Christ.
