San Francisco Teen Challenge



San Francisco Teen Challenge is a rescue mission birthed in New York City and was integrated into San Francisco in 1964 with Glad Tidings.  

In this program, men are discipled, trained, and allowed time to heal from life-controlling issues of all kinds.  Many of these men have never known the love of Christ before they enter the house, but soon find a warm and inviting atmosphere full of loving people who rally around them and support them through an intensive one-year program where they can find fullness in Jesus.

Teen Challenge has one of the highest success rates of people who complete the program and stay sober, as our focus is dealing with the root causes of the issues, not simply the issues themselves.  We believe in that goal, and will continue to perpetuate life-change as long as our doors are open
