At Tides Family Services We Exist to Instill Hope And Anchor Families.

Instilling hope It means seeing everyone’s greatest potential, never putting conditions on relationships and standing by our motto of, ‘no reject, no eject.’

Anchoring families It means acknowledging that if we want to see real, lasting change, it’s critical to strengthen families. We never give up—never!

That’s What We Care About. Every day, more than 500 families rely on Tides to make changes in their lives that promote stability and independence and influence lasting generational change.


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.
