Mission Teens, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 faith-based ministry. Our goal is to help people who have life-controlling problems, such as drug or alcohol addictions, by ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them. We believe that the Gospel should be free to all. We do not charge for our services; all of our support comes from concerned individuals and a few churches who are sensitive to the type of work we do. We do not receive any denominational funding (we are non-denominational). We provide housing, meals, clothing, and all basic necessities free of charge.
Our residential program is 8-10 months long. During this time, our residents participate in daily meetings, counseling, and Bible classes taught by volunteers and local clergy who have a vision for the ministry we offer. Residents may also be assigned to help out in the kitchen or trustee department, which helps them learn necessary skills for when they return home. We do not accept insurance or charge anything for the services we provide and we rely solely on the support of donors who are sensitive to what we are doing.
We have 20 residential locations throughout the United States and our main office is located in Audubon, NJ. We can house approximately 650 people at any given time. Since 1969, over 35,000 people have participated in the Mission Teens program. Of graduates that we hear from, our current success rate is 88%.
