Review for Teen Challenge of East Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

At first as a volunteer I spent every other weekend at the crisis center. On Saturdays we would have free time, bible study, writing in journals, reading, talking, crying. I took the ladies to church on Sunday. This was my first experience doing volunteer work of this kind. Spending time with the women that came through the center was a blessing. A blessing that I had not expected. The Teen Challenge staff became my second family after my church family. I was doubly blessed! As a volunteer now I help where needed. It may be to take the ladies to church, helping teach bible study or helping with fund raisers. My church has become involved with Teen Challenge by offering manual labor and financial support. Praise the Lord for Teen Challenge!

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

men and women that have the heart to serve, to encourage, to love and help women that are at such a critical time in their lives. A time that they are in such pain and reaching out desperately for help and a way to have dreams and a future.
