2021 “Small Miracles, Big Hearts”

Holiday Gift Campaign


We will host three statewide events this year to ensure the holidays are magical for the more than 500 youth & families we serve a day – statewide!   If you would like to participate, please consider a donation or adopting a family and/or a youth.  For more information, please contact Christina at 822-1360, Ext. 107 or cjagolinzer@tidesfs.org or click the Donate button below.





2,500 funds a youth for our BMR program, where we offer informal counseling, therapeutic groups such as art group, and movie group, a parent-support group, educational advocacy, support with basic needs, support with linkages to psychiatric care and/or more formal counseling, increased connections to the community, life-skills development such as resume writing, how to apply for a job, how to dress for a job, in-person and virtual response to families, and individualized goal setting.

$1,000 helps to fund a student to attend one of our Tides Schools. The Tides school specializes in working with at risk, traumatized, special needs students from various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds who need a smaller, therapeutic setting in order to reach their educational goals. The Tides School provides a connection to community and access to healthy, supportive relationships, coupled with appropriate educational services. Our schools include Cooking classes and Woodshop classes.

$500 funds a family for the holidays including food and gifts.

$100 funds an activity for a youth: sports, music, camp, art classes, YMCA membership, etc.

Tides 2020 Annual Report

View our full 2020 report

Tides is a non-traditional agency, unlike any other. Our “no-walls” philosophy puts us in the heart of neighborhoods our clients live—the most distressed and poverty-stricken areas of Rhode Island. Our community-based programs service these youth, aged 6-21, and we’re there for them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Our programs include strength-based counseling, structured recreation, cognitive behavioral therapy, after-school programming and two small, licensed schools.

We believe in doing whatever it takes, for as long as it takes.
Join us and help impact these children, their families, and in turn, our communities at large.
