I heard about Fair Tide several years ago and believe in their mission and in what they are doing. Their services make a difference. I studied the problem of homelessness in college and Fair Tide exemplifies what grassroots organizations are supposed to do in addressing the problem.
Fair Tide is the real deal and has connected with a number of different grassroots organizations in order to address a problem on the southern Maine coast many people are not aware of at all--homelessness. Led by caring and dedicated people, Fair Tide has had amazing success since being founded in 1998. I think they are an important community resource.
