Fairhaven House Vision


The vision of Fairhaven House is to provide a clean and sober living environment for individuals recovering from substance abuse or other addictive behavior.

Fairhaven House believes in not only providing a safe and healthy environment for recovery, but to help individuals work through the root issues behind their addictions.

We believe individuals can be set free from the bondage of addictions.

Fairhaven House goals

  • Provide a stable environment of love, encouragement, purity, and discipline

  • Help members obtain and sustain a consistent form of education and employment until they are prepared to transition back into society more independently, where they can become responsible citizens and positive contributors to our communities. (We understand some individuals have disabilities that prevent them from working. They also are able to be a member of Fairhaven House and to walk in sobriety instead of 'self medicating'.)

  • Disciple individuals who desire to know and follow Jesus Christ. (Fairhaven House is a faith-based program but does not require members to have any kind of religious affiliation. Individuals are not required to participate in the discipleship program.)

  • Help members in discovering areas in which they can serve.
Fairhaven House Function

At Fairhaven House we seek to accomplish the following with our members whom we serve:

  • Provide low-cost housing with utilities included. Laundry service is available at no extra charge. 

  • Hold several spiritual meetings pertaining to sobriety and recovery.

  • Pray regularly with our members if they desire.

  • Teach and help members learn how to transition into independent living and effectively live and work with others. We accomplish this by program guidelines, a structured environment, an atmosphere of respect and honor, and by applying principles that will help individuals to live an overcoming life.

  • Encourage 12-step meetings and sponsorship/mentorship support so that they have good accountability in their life.

  • Connect members to outside support services, treatment facilities, and counseling if needed.

Sober Living Housing


Fairhaven House has one home: Valley Ridge (a nicotine free home) is located on Military Rd. in Seatac, WA.Currently, we are offering housing only for men.

Members of Fairhaven House pay monthly membership dues for low income housing and various other services to help them to live a life of sobriety and to literally be transformed from the lifestyle of addiction. The membership dues include utilities and laundry service. Fairhaven House offers double occupancy, single occupancy, and studio units.
Membership Dues: $360-$550 a month (Dues are subject to change.)
House Members provide their own food and laundry soap.

Fairhaven House has a zero tolerance regarding the possession and/or use of alcohol,drugs, viewing pornography, or gambling on/off the premises. Smoking is not allowed on the property.

Fairhaven House has a curfew of 10pm-Midnight depending upon the house. Individuals do not need to check in or out. After the first 30 days, individuals may leave the premises up to 48 hrs with prior approval.

We have a gentleman that was a mental health counselor but lost his practice because of alcoholism. He is now living a life of sobriety and works full-time as a counselor. His next goal before he leaves one of our houses is to make restitution on past debts.

We have a gentleman who would go commercial fishing and spend all his earnings on alcohol for several years. Last year he moved into the house, went commercial fishing, and has moved back into the house.

We had a man who was living on the streets and did not take a bath for a year before he went into treatment and moved into Fairhaven. He has been sober for over two years.

We had a gentleman who because of living in a clean & sober environment was able to go back to school and obtain a CDL license to be a truck driver.

More Testimonials

Have we had men relapse? Sad to say yes. That happens in the addiction arena.
But we focus on the ones that make it.

Support Fairhaven House

Do you believe in what we are doing? There are a variety of ways to help support Fairhaven House through volunteering, donating of items, monthly pledges, etc. Click here for more info.

We really do need your help. Membership Dues alone are not enough to cover the expenses of this ministry. Besides house leases, repairs and utilities we have the expense of advertising, drug tests, office expenses, and fuel costs.

It should be noted that no staff members receive a salary.

Fairhaven House More InfoFairhaven House does much more than provide clean & sober housing. We reach out to the addicted community by providing resources on addiction & recovery, helping individuals to get into treatment, provide pastoral counseling, and bring a message of hope. Fairhaven House does not withhold any services to individuals based upon on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, union membership, or veteran status. However, currently we only have houses for men.
