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.
