Teen Challenge of Southern California was established in 1963 and now operates 10 regional facilities, including the one-year Ministry Institute and Timothy House, a residential home for adolescent boys. Each year, Teen Challenge of Southern California serves hundreds of thousands men, women and children through its resident and outreach programs.
Teen Challenge of Southern California is a non-profit organization that relies entirely on the generous donations, funding and volunteer efforts of individuals and organizations throughout Southern California in order to offer services at no cost to the individual. We know that community involvement and support is an essential component of recovery and necessary to providing services that address the specific needs of the communities involved.
It is the mission of Teen Challenge to provide youth, adults and children an effective and comprehensive faith-based solution to drug and alcohol addiction as well as other life-controlling problems. We are committed to enabling and equipping those we serve to find freedom from addictive behavior, to become socially and emotionally healthy, physically well and spiritually alive. Teen Challenge reaches out to people from all backgrounds and gives back to local communities with outreaches, events, after-school programs and much more.
