Stories of Change

The homeless and hurting depend on Fairhaven to meet their physical and spiritual needs … many have no one else. They come here looking for a helping hand and a loving heart – someone to care. I hope these words of appreciation from our clients will bless you.

“If it was not for Fairhaven Rescue Mission, me and my kids would not have food for Christmas and if it wasn’t for the mission Thrift Store we would not have clothes. We are thankful for all the people who help families every year. God Bless to All.”

“Thank you for everything you provide for us. A lot of people don’t care about others but I am glad you take time out to help people like myself. I am grateful for everything you do. God Bless. Thank you.”

“A gracious thank you to those of you who think of us at Fairhaven. I have only been coming to the mission for about a month, but the feeling of family here has really touched my heart. God bless all of you and thank you.”

“I appreciate the mission because it feels real nice to have a place that I can fit in and not be judged or ridiculed. I have no family and here I really feel wanted and like I belong.”

“I just want to say thank you for all the help we receive throughout the year. Thanks for letting us come to Fairhaven and learn and study the Bible. I really appreciate the Thrift Store in these troubled times. We need all the help we can get. Thanks for being patient with us. I look forward to another year with God and your blessings.”

“Fairhaven has been a very special place for me, especially in my hour of need. I wish to thank anyone connected with helping me as well as helping others. We are all hurting at one time or another. The holidays are coming and of course the mission will make sure that it is a joyous time. May God bless and keep those who help and donate to the mission. GOD REALLY IS LOVE.”

History

Incorporated in 1984, Fairhaven Rescue Mission serves the Northern Kentucky / Greater Cincinnati area. Filling a vital community role, Fairhaven Rescue Mission provides Christ-centered programs and services that respond to the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of homeless and hurting men, women and children.

Statement of Faith

We believe in one God, eternally existing Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the virgin birth and absolute Deity of Jesus Christ.

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that His shed blood is the only means for the remission of sins.

We believe that the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and that they are the supreme, final and only authority of faith and life.

We believe that man was created by God in God’s image; he sinned as recorded in Genesis, causing physical and spiritual death.

We believe sin entered into the world by Adam and as a result, the entire human race is born with a sinful nature and spiritually dead.

We believe that when a person receives by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit regenerates that person into the family of God.

We believe in a future Heaven for the saved and that it is not obtained as the result of good works, but we believe in the maintenance of good works, and holy living as a result of salvation.
