The cost to Teen Challenge to care for one student is a minimal average of $1,500.00 per month. Though no one is turned away for lacking this, he still must take responsibility for it. We are actively engaged in various fund raising and work projects throughout our community as part of the program structure.

We firmly believe that developing a strong work ethic needs to be an integral part of the discipline process. As the student participates in these various projects, a dollar per hour amount is credited toward his tuition account. But, because the student is not able to meet the entire tuition obligation, we expect the applicant to secure sponsors to help.

This is primarily done by means of soliciting the financial support of their family, friends, and church to be “Good Samaritans,” to sponsor them for the duration of their stay in Teen Challenge.  The minimum amount of sponsorship funds raised, if at all possible, must be a minimum of $100.00 per month before entering the program. The length of stay is from 12 to 16 months depending upon the individual’s progress.
