Teen Challenge is searching for the site of our future Girl's Adolescent Center. If you have land or a building you wish to donate (100% tax deductible) to Teen Challenge, please contact Dr. Randy Rowe or Dana Rowe; or call the Administration Office at (408) 703-2001.
Teen Challenge is in the process of expanding its program to meet the increasing needs of our youth. We want to open an adolescent center for girls between the ages of 12-18 that will rescue, rebuild and revive the lives of homeless teens from prostitution, drugs, gangs and street life.
Statistics indicated that:
1.3 million children live on the streets.
1 in 7 of 10-18 year-olds will run away from home.
Programs and alternatives for these at-risk youth are limited.
Within 3 days 48% turn to survival by sex, drug sales and use, or theft. (National Runaway Switchboard statistics, 2000).
Recognizing that these children are one of our greatest assets and our “future,” we are dedicated to changing the lives of these troubled youth, but recognize that we can’t do it alone. Teen Challenge wants to provide a program structured similarly to our adult programs, yet tailored to the unique needs of these desperate youth. It is projected that start-up costs for the Adolescent Center will be $1,500,000 - $2,500,000 for the facility and $2,500/month per student. Students who enter the current programs come to us with limited or no available funds and live in the program for a minimum of one-year.
If you are interested in helping us transform the lives of these desperate youth, mail your tax-deductible donation TODAY to be a part of this exciting opportunity.
