Teen Challenge began it’s ministry in the Greater Washington, DC area in the mid 1960′s with street evangelism and soon after (early 70′s) a residential center housing 15 students that was located in Washington, DC. In 1978 our residential facility expanded and was moved to its present location at 6900 Central Avenue, Capitol Heights, MD. Teen Challenge has been a very active ministry in the Metropolitan areas of Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia and is well recognized by the community, court systems, local businesses, community groups and local churches. We have had the privilege of ministering to hundreds of men, spouses and families during the last 41 years . Teen Challenge has been here reaching out, offering hope and help to those who are hurting, and seeking freedom from lifestyles controlled by addictions.
