August Regional Update
Willamette Valley Men’s Center
On July 28th, we held our 2nd Annual Adult & Teen Challenge Golf Tournament fundraiser for the Willamette Valley Men’s Campus. Blessed by a gorgeous day on Mallard Creek Golf Course in Lebanon over 80 players came out for an 18-hole 4-person scramble. Local businesses and donors provided goodie bags and raffle prizes to ensure no player would leave empty handed.
We are grateful to all the players, sponsors, volunteers and tournament host Mallard Creek. We would like to thank our Title Sponsor RIST Group/Keller Williams and Corvallis Subaru for providing TWO hole-in-one cars. We would also like to thank private donors for providing all of the beverages and snacks for the day keeping our players well hydrated and full on a 95 degree day.
A special thanks to:
Bliss Group of Huggins Insurance for being our Lunch Sponsor
Hope Church for being a Corporate Sponsor

Portland Men’s Center
We have been building our relationship with the Oregon City DHS office and were recently invited to speak at their District meeting. It was an amazing opportunity to tell 50 DHS case workers and case managers about what we do and who Teen Challenge is. We also got an opportunity to network with other organizations in the area that provide services to people in need.
We would like to acknowledge an amazing program supporter and volunteer Darin McCarthy. He has been involved with the Portland men’s center for about a year now and is always available to help in any way that we need. Darin and his wife recently opened their beautiful home, and pool, up to our guys and hosted an incredible spread and good times splashing around.
We also have 2 men that have recently become sponsored students; Eban and Lee. Sponsored students must have completed phase three and demonstrated a commitment to to the program and to change through Christ.
We have a Graduation Coming the 1st of September. Damick A. will have completed his year and will be doing an internship with our center. This internship is geared to building leadership skills and also about learning all the different aspects of what we do at the center level. We are very excited to be a part of the next chapter of this amazing man’s life! God is so faithful!
