Program Description
In 2011, we celebrated 30 years of successful work with troubled youth. Families need a place like Teen Challenge to send their sons who may be experiencing drug or alcohol dependency or problems with crime and violence. We accept boys between the ages of 14 and 17. (We will consider 13 year olds on a case by case basis. You need to apply so that we can assess the situation.)

We believe that young people can learn about themselves and better decision-making through a faith-based system that tells them they CAN CHANGE! With God, all things are possible! We provide qualified Christian counselors for one-on-one sessions. We also provide group sessions dealing with a wide variety of pertinent issues for teens.

We provide a safe, healthy environment that helps them learn to make better choices. They also have the chance to see that God has a plan for their lives. Students are taught the power of prayer and seeking God for answers when they face challenges in life.

At Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge, we help to restore broken families. We offer regular family counseling sessions for the boys in the program. We see the miracle of reconciliation and restored joy. Families are encouraged to seek their own Christian counseling and guidance while their sons are in the program.

Over 1,000 boys and their families have experienced this change and restoration since we opened our doors in 1981. It is so rewarding to see the day by day transformations in their lives.

Many parents have said it best, “Thanks for giving me back my son.”
