"I’ve believed in this ministry since its very beginning. And I continue to support it. I consider it a real privilege to endorse this work. Thank God for Teen Challenge!"

Rev. Billy Graham


"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."

President Ronald Regan

"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."

"One of the best –documented success rates among faith-based efforts is that of Teen Challenge, which combats drug addiction…When Teen Challenge claimed a 70 percent cure rate for addiction, it was challenged by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, which funded a study by the National Institute of Mental Health in 1975. Critics were skeptical of Teen Challenge’s claims. To the surprise of the investigators, the study published in 1976, showed that 86 percent of Teen Challenge graduates were living drug-free lives."

Street Saints, by Barbara J. Elliott

"What a joy it was for me to be with you in Milwaukee. I appreciate all of your hard work. I want to tell you that I appreciate you as being a man of God and a man of integrity. I work with many organizations all over the world and many Teen Challenges, and it is refreshing to me to work with someone like you who has a heart for ministry and is a person who has learned to give to others."

Nicky Cruz, 1999
