In 1958, Pastor David Wilkerson reached out to troubled street youth in New York City. Today, Teen Challenge is a 12-month, faith-based, residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that is part of a network of over 13 Teen Challenge Centres across Canada and more than 1,100 worldwide.
The program has a strong faith-based approach, and offers spiritual, academic and vocational training that helps equip individuals to return to society as responsible citizens.
To help more women trapped in the vicious cycle of addiction, in 2019 they are opening the Prairie Hope Women’s Centre in Hague, SK. It will have room for 26 women, and include dorms, a chapel, classrooms, a dining hall, counselling spaces, and provisions for recreation, exercise, and work.
