Teen Challenge, VT runs a 15 month residential program providing drug and alcohol addiction recovery and rehabilitation. They also, through their End Addiction program, bring substance abuse prevention presentations to schools, youth groups or community events. Teen Challenge, VT is in the process of opening a women's facility where abused and addicted women can find refuge. It will be functional in the spring of 2019. Important to note: No one is turned away from Teen Challenge because of lack of funds. Teen Challenge, VT does not receive any tax raised money. Your donation is tax deductable. The organization is not 501c3 registered because it is an outreach of a church which is not,by IRS rules, required to have 501c3 status. You will receive a receipt for your tax purposes at the end of the year. Thanks for your support.
