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.
