History and Mission



Teen Challenge Vermont


In September of 2004 a property was purchased in Johnson, Vermont for the establishment of the first Teen Challenge Center in the state.


Teen Challenge Vermont is located on 10.5 acres, on a beautiful mountainside with a breathtaking view of Sterling Ridge. Where we work in an environment conducive to helping men overcome life controlling issues.


We opened our doors officially and received our first resident on January 3rd, 2005. Since then, we have helped hundreds of men learn to live successful quality lives, and Teen Challenge Vermont has grown to include an additional locations in Hardwick & Rutland, VT. Our goal, is to effectively cover the entire state.


We look forward to opening our first program for women in Vermont, starting in early 2018


Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey was one of the first Teen Challenge ministries founded in the United States.


Ministry throughout New England emanated from the first center located in Boston established in 1964. A strategic expansion from 1999 to 2007 established sites in all six states of New England and in New Jersey.


Life-changing residential recovery programs provide a faith-filled approach for helping drug addicts and alcoholics transform their lives. More than 400 adult men and women can be cared for in the Teen Challenge homes.


Vibrant outreach ministry into jails, prisons and needy communities are conducted year round. Drug prevention programs are available for public and private schools. The Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey Choirs can be found ministering hope, healing and encouragement in area churches each week.


The corporate headquarters is in Brockton, Massachusetts.
