"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."

"If you’re thinking that it’s not worth it - ya it is when you buy it from Teen Challenge! If you don’t want it, buy it and bring it again next year.

Listening to the statistics about Teen Challenge graduates, you don’t find that after six months they are out there doing the same old thing again."
