OUR HISTORY

In 1978, Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth was birthed in Chattanooga. For more than 40 years it has been involved in meeting the needs of those bound by “life-controlling addictions.” Our organization has grown from its humble beginnings in a small home on Willow Street serving only 6 men, to its present location of 7 acres at the foot of Lookout Mountain. Our facilities have capacity to house 65 men and women. This is a 12-month residential program for both men and women. (18+)

We have remained unwavering and dedicated to a program that has not only impacted the lives of over 3000 men and women who have entered our residential program, but we have seen literally thousands of others turn their lives around through our outreaches and how the residents impact their own family; it becomes a ripple effect.
