——————- -

"As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Teen Challenge Canada, we are filled with gratitude for all that God has done in the lives of individuals and families struggling with addiction. Throughout the past five decades, Teen Challenge Canada has been a beacon of light in the dark world of addiction, helping thousands of individuals and families find lasting freedom from substance abuse. We have seen the power of God to transform lives, and it is His work that truly allows individuals to overcome their struggles. We are humbled by the trust our current clients place in us every day, and we are filled with joy as we see the success of hundreds of program graduates and the difference they are making in their families and local communities. Each story of hope and transformation is a reminder of the healing power of God, and we are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it. We are committed to continuing this work, in the knowledge that God is with us, as we help those in need. With His help, we can continue to provide hope, help, and freedom to those who need it most. As we look ahead to the next 50 years, we are excited for what God has in store for Teen Challenge Canada and for the lives we will touch."
–– Glen Smeltzer, CEO, Teen Challenge Canada
