"I’ve believed in this ministry since its very beginning. And I continue to support it. I consider it a real privilege to endorse this work. Thank God for Teen Challenge!"

Rev. Billy Graham


"Teen Challenge is the oldest one of the most effective ongoing programs of its kind in America. Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with substance abuse but it also gives our kids something to live for, a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere."

President Ronald Regan

"My wife Jan andI had the privilage of developing and directing the Rawhide Boys Ranch program for 35 years, helping young men from the juvenile courts get their lives back on track.It is now a great honor to serve on the Teen Challenge Board helping young adults become Godly citizens. It thrills us to see first hand the wonderful work TC is doing for men and women from our communities. This organization is probably the most successful in the nation and certainly worthy of our support."

John Gillespie
Founder of Rawhide Boys Ranch, and Teen Challenge Board Member

"What I like about Teen Challenge and their mission is that they treat you as they see you should be and by doing that, it makes you become all you can be. There are a lot of programs where people say they are going into treatment and they complete that program, they get a certificate and then a week later they are back out on the street using again. I don’t have that problem with defendants who come through Teen Challenge."

Honorable Derek Mosley
Judge of Milwaukee Municipal Court

"I would like to say that October 29, 2004 was the most inspirational, yet informative event that I have attended on behalf of Alderman Davis, Sr. since my appointment began. I was most impressed with the graduates and their personal achievements. Also, the choir sang with so much passion and conviction, it became overwhelming at one point in the evening."

Katina Robertson-Johnson
Alderman Joe Davis, Sr.
