Become A “One Warm Night” Sponsor

Did you know Fair Tide houses at least twelve individuals, 7 days a week, 365 days a year?

That equals 4,380 warm nights every year, which is why Fair Tide launched the “One Warm Night” campaign asking for support from the community in an effort to end homelessness.

For only $31, you can be a “One Warm Night” sponsor and provide a safe, warm bed for a child or an adult in your (our) community for a night. YOU and Fair Tide . . . making dreams a reality. By working together, the families we serve will have a home as they work to develop the skills needed to be self-sufficient members of our community.

What Fair Tide believes

Fair Tide believes when our fellow community members are ill, unemployed, or homeless, we all suffer. Our residents are motivated, hard-working people who, for a variety of reasons, became homeless over a period of time. The Fair Tide transitional housing program keeps residents safe while they work toward self-sufficiency so they can obtain and remain in housing on their own.

Fair Tide’s “One Warm Night” campaign directly funds our program and contributes to positive, sustainable outcomes for Fair Tide residents.


Affecting positive change

Eighty percent of former Fair Tide residents have gained the skills necessary to live independently and continue to maintain permanent housing today! With our One Warm Night campaign, it’s easy to directly invest in the infrastructure of our community by supporting someone within the Fair Tide program.

You can affect positive, sustainable change and create a stronger community by donating now.
