Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our overall goal is to have the boys enrolled in the Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch program leave our program free from addictions and able to become productive and happy members of society. The return to society for each student may look different. Many program participants complete and graduate from high school while in our residents and leave to enter college, vocational education, a job or mission work. Others will return to their homes and finish school, while living an addiction free life.

Each boy that enters Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch is assigned a case manager, and an Individual Education Plan is created by the Director of Education. Additionally, every student has an after-care plan, designed and executed by our After-Care Specialist. All of these plans are designed to include the entire family unit, not just the young man. The daily structure at TCAR is very structured and disciplined, designed to change behaviors and way of thinking. The after-care program is 6 months giving our program participants an average of 15 months with TCAR.

We have a dedicated staff committed to changing lives. We currently have 52 full-time staff, which makes our staff/program participant ratio one of the highest in the country, Our Full Life Center, which is where Chapel, school, individual and group counseling sessions and meal times take place, is a state-of-the-art facility. We have two dormitory buildings, where each boy is assigned his own room, with shared bathroom facilities. The 30 acre campus provides a full array of outdoor activities, including a ropes course and equine therapy.

Since 1973, we have helped thousands of young men conquer life challenging addictions with a Christ-Centered therapeutic approach. In the next five years, our program will expand to allow us to serve more boys in newer facilities.
