The Pacific Northwest Adult & Teen Challenge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, faith-based program. Our Portland Metro Campus serves men who are 18 years or older, whose lives are being destroyed by life-controlling problems such as drugs, alcohol, gang activity, destructive behavior, or other negative life styles.
Adult & Teen Challenge is an international Christian program with over 50 years of history providing assistance, supporting, and challenging people to make the right choices by turning away from their destructive life styles.
The staff members and volunteers at Adult & Teen Challenge are here because they believe that the Lord has called them to this ministry to reach-out and help desperate people seek and find answers. If you want to change your lifestyle and are willing to be totally honest, open, and teachable, then Teen Challenge is the place for you. You and only you must choose to face reality and deal with your problems maturely with the help of God's love, forgiveness, and redemptive power.
Adult & Teen Challenge does not receive federal or state funding, but is locally supported and entirely dependent upon free will gifts, contributions, our work programs, fundraisers, and TC Resale & Donation stores.
