Monthly Tuition/Support Policy

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.

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 (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.
