Review for TEEN CHALLENGE OF EAST TENNESSEE, Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a counselor for Teen Challenge and saw first-hand the great need. Most of the clients served did not have the ability to pay or donate toward their services. Teen Challenge ALWAYS ministered and would try to find a way to meet clients' needs regardless of their circumstances. This is a worthy cause because it makes a difference in families, the community and God's kingdom. Many of the clients served were teenagers from surrounding communities who were struggling to make good choices and go against peer and community pressure to take the easy road with drugs and alcohol.

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

Working with the dedicated individuals who really have a heart to serve individuals and make a difference in the community.

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

absolutely outstanding and some of the hardest-working and most dedicated to caring for clients' needs that I have ever met.

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

Minister to more individuals and take on more staff to care for clients and help clients get in programs nationally that did not have the funds to do so. With revenue, practical needs for this service could be met and allow more individuals to be served.

Ways to make it better...

there had been enough funds to help more people and everyone could be helped when they first approached for services instead of long waiting times due to shortfalls in budget and space.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of finances which are only met through donations which are at times very unreliable.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Clients receive the utmost care and concern and would not find better treatment anywhere that I am aware of without having great insurance or financial support allowing for good care.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
