					How do I get someone into Teen Challenge?
Daily, we receive calls from “Good Samaritans” – family members, pastors and friends – wanting to know how to get someone into the program. While there are specific situations that may need to be addressed differently, the general steps are as follows: 1. phOne cAll. The person needing help must take responsibility and call to set up an interview for themselves. (Women call 530-751-9511, men call 916-443-3049, or in redding call 530-246-1561.) 2. intervieW. They are given a tour of the center and an explanation of how the program works. They also complete a short interview form and their eligibility is determined. 3. phYsicAl eXAm. Unless they are in a real crisis, they will be asked to get a physical exam, including a few laboratory tests to ensure that they do not have any contagious diseases. 4. AdmissiOn. An admission date is scheduled for the man or woman to enter the program. •	 THERE	IS	NO	CHARGE	FOR	OUR	SERVICES. •	 WE	DO	ACCEPT	PEOPLE	WHO		ARE	 cOurt-AppOinted. •	 ADMISSION	FORMS	ARE	AVAILABLE	 Online At: www.teenchallenge.ws

We have elected to not accept any government funding; thus, we are entirely funded by the private sector. Nor have we asked the men and women (students) in our care to apply for food stamps and welfare. Rather, through teaching and by example they learn that the world does not owe them a living, and that with God’s help they can be responsible and contributing citizens. Neither do we charge our students the approximately $1,000 each that it costs us to care for them every month, lest it prohibit them from being able to receive the help they need. Rather, we have them involved to some degree in

The Teen Challenge ministry was begun in 1958 in New York City by Rev. David Wilkerson. It has now evolved into an international organization with hundreds of centers around the world. While the ministry began with a focus on teen-aged gang members, Teen Challenge now reaches men and women with any lifecontrolling problem of any age. Sacramento Valley Teen Challenge began in 1974 and now oversees an array of community outreaches besides operating four centers where men and women eighteen years of age and older can reside while they undergo the 15 to 18 month Christian-life training program. Needy minors are referred to centers who care for minors only.

The success rate of Teen Challenge has been independently verified many times through the years, and again most recently in 1999, when Northwestern University found that 86% of those completing the program remained drug-free. It also found that 84% attended church at least weekly and 90% of the graduates were still employed. Teen Challenge is recognized as one of the oldest, the largest, and the most successful program of its type in the world today. The difference is simply the Jesus factor!

Transformed Lives, Transforming the Land!

the various Teen Challenge enterprises where they learn general work principals and a good work ethic. Through these afternoon enterprises they help to raise over half of the cost of their care. Thus, we are in need of friends who will meet them halfway by joining us in investing in the lives of discarded young men, women and children so they can receive a second chance through Jesus Christ. For more information on how you can sponsor these men and women, or about other ways to be involved, including volunteering or employment opportunities, call us at (916) 362-2800 or (800) 437-1919.
