Fairhaven House is No Longer in Operation

Our Clients: Christian (or spiritual seekers) men and women who are looking for a safe, affordable place to live where they can get back on their feet and have a fresh start. Our housing is also available to Christian men and women moving into the Seattle area that need temporary housing. Potential clients need to be alcohol and drug free at least 30 days and nicotine free for at least 7 days. (We also at times accept spiritual seekers and individuals with less recovery time.)

Fairhaven House is a nicotine-free program. This means members are not allowed to smoke on or off premises. We test for alcohol, drugs, and nicotine.

It should be noted that Fairhaven House is much more than an affordable sober housing program. Clients are not renters. They are members of a faith based program that helps them to overcome addictions and other challenges in life and housing is one of the benefits of the program. (Disclaimer-Even though we are a faith-based program, we are not like many intense Christian discipleship programs. We do not force multitudes of Bible Studies, church services, prayer, 'work blessings', etc. There is a place for such programs, but that is not our program. We do not 'force Christianity' on anyone. We do not 'force' individuals to be Christians or Christ-like.)

Fairhaven House Vision

We understand that at times Christian men and women have made bad choices in their life or have hit hard times and they may need temporary housing or housing that does not require a good rental history. We want to provide that housing at an affordable rate.

Fairhaven House provides housing on a month to month basis. Individuals that are compliant with all guidelines may stay up to 1-1/2 years.

Fairhaven House is an outreach of Seattle Open Door Church.

Vision of SODC
Loving God, Loving People and Loving Life
. We are committed to make a difference in our local community.

Mission of SODC
To reach out to the disillusioned, disenchanted, disconnected, disenfranchised and spiritual seekers by introducing them to the accepting and loving Jesus Christ. It is our goal to get them connected within a loving body of Christ followers, helping them grow in Christ through discipleship, and sending them out to reach those that don't know Christ, who are backslidden, or may be hopeless.

How SODC Accomplishes its Vision and Mission
SODC members believe as we love God He will lead us to those who need the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Out of our love for these individuals we will connect with them to show them the love of God and then lead them to a saving relationship with Christ. We will then help them to become strong followers of Christ through discipleship so they can not only be justified through Christ but so they can walk in holiness (sanctification). We will in the process equip them and send them out to win others to Christ.

The Christian men and women who live in the homes of Fairhaven House have the opportunity to be involved in ministry at Seattle Open Door Church. They also have the opportunity to receive spiritual counseling, coaching, and discipleship. Thus, Fairhaven House offers much more than affordable housing.
