If the applicant receives SSI (Social Security) or other Government benefits (disability, pension, etc.), the Social Security Administration has designated that 30% of your benefit must be applied to room and board. Thirty percent or $300 (minimum monthly support payments), whichever is greater, must be given to Adult & Teen Challenge for your housing.

Monthly Tuition/Support Policy
Adult & Teen Challenge has earned a reputation of being among one the most successful programs in the nation, helping those bound by life-controlling addictions.
What do you and your loved one receive for $10 per day/$300 per month? The cost to care for a student in the Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth program is approximately $3,000 per month.
Adult & Teen Challenge provides housing and care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This includes lodging in our new and clean facilities, utilities, meals, transportation, classroom materials, counseling and clothing if needed. We are asking the family to commit to 10% of the cost as a “minimum” support level. This can be done by using the same methods that we use when fundraising, contacting family, friends and your church family to give towards this support. We (Adult & Teen Challenge) will do our part to raise other 90% for your loved one. While we do receive food stamp subsidies for some (not all) students, it in no way covers the cost to feed our residents for a month.
