"Teen Challenge is the oldest one of the most effective ongoing programs of its kind in America. Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with substance abuse but it also gives our kids something to live for, a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere."

"My wife Jan andI had the privilage of developing and directing the Rawhide Boys Ranch program for 35 years, helping young men from the juvenile courts get their lives back on track.It is now a great honor to serve on the Teen Challenge Board helping young adults become Godly citizens. It thrills us to see first hand the wonderful work TC is doing for men and women from our communities. This organization is probably the most successful in the nation and certainly worthy of our support."

"In a small way, I want to thank you for your work. President Bush and the people that I work in the Office National Drug Control Policy understand the work of nurturing children, healing broken families, helping those who suffer the afflictions of drug abuse is done by you and people like you across the country… We don’t have to argue whether or not recovery is possible. We have living witnesses among us."
