“We have recently built a brand new facility where families feel good dropping off their loved ones and the men in the program can feel proud of the place they are building their new life.” – Jeremy Kupsch
Below are the new dorms with live-in staff housing. This is unique to our campus and we believe it deepens the experience our 42 residence have because of the continual accountability and relationship in-house staff offers. These new dorms allow us to house 20 more beds and with more beds, that means more classrooms are needed! We’ve also expanded our classroom space which you can view below.
“We take pride in where you live because we believe the living space impacts the recover process.” – Jeremy Kupsch

My name is Ryan Loucks, I’m 20 years old and am a senior student here at Orlando Teen Challenge. In this program Christ has set me free from a destructive lifestyle of addiction and I’m learning how to walk in my identity as a child of God. I’m happier than ever and I’m never going back! Thank you Orlando Teen Challenge!
My name is Brian Buchanan and I am 43 years old. Since coming to Teen Challenge I have made Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior and he’s completely set me free from years of alcoholism. I am currently in re-entry, getting ready to move back home to be the father he has called me to be to my 3 year old son, Lincoln. Thank you Jesus and Orlando Teen Challenge for giving me my life back!

"NO WARRANTY" LEGAL NOTICE: While independent outcomes studies have shown very high recovery rates for indiviuals in our programs, we cannot guarantee recovery for any particular individual. Recovery and future abstinence from addicting substances and the effects that such substances may have on the individual or their life, actions, or their future are entirely dependent on the individual and how well they apply the principles we have taught them. We are an educational institution, and how the individual in our program learns from what they are taught and modeled here, is totally up to them. Individuals who stay the full term (until graduation) have much better long-term recovery from addicitons than those who do not.
