Teen Challenge of East Tennessee provides a wonderful contribution to the city of Knoxville. They have long been a vital resource of hope for troubled individuals and families in the area. From counselling to temporary housing, they provide pratical help coupled with sincere loving care for problems ranging from substance and/or physical abuse to long term rehabilitaion of women who find themselves imprisoned for misdemeanor charges. I have a young daughter who has an on going problem with alcohol and may face a jail sentence in the future. I am extremely thankful for a place like Teen Challenge that can offer her more than a sentence behind bars and actually has the resources to help her successfully change her lifestyle. As a parent, I'm very impressed and relieved to know that there is a place like Teen Challenge available for families with young women who need help.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely kind and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand it's outreach to the community with added staff and larger facilites largely effecting the number of people that will benefit from their services.

As the Administrative Assistant of a local church I have had the privilege of knowing Barbara Mitchell and Teen Challenge of East TN. I can truly say that Barbara and the staff strive for excellence in all that they do. They have a heart for those in need in the Knoxville area. I have attended several events over the years like the Tent Meeting and Parade of Tables. This organization is worthy of praise. I have heard the testimonies of several ladies that have gone through this program and come out as strong citizens in their community, ready to serve and give back to others in need. I support Teen Challenge of East TN because of their integrity, commitment to excellence, and their proven record of changing lives for the positive. This organization should be commended for their impact in the Knoxville Community and the surrounding areas.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind and helpful. Always willing to listen. Grateful for anyone who can help.

Teen Challenge is a real Christian based program for people in need. Not only are they helped physically and mentally with their problems but Teen Challenge works from the inside (spiritually) out to make sure that the demon of self destruction does not return. This organization serves anyone and everyone that has a need. The positive results are almost 100% if candidates will simply give theirselves to the program. Praise God for the hearts of the Teen Challenge team!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching the hearts of fallen people be lifted again to praise God for his mercies on their lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and loving people with hearts for others in need of help.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
