About Delmarva Teen Challenge
and the Teen Challenge Thrift Store
Delmarva Teen Challenge operates the Teen Challenge Thrift
Store to help raise support for our men’s program. Our
students range in age from 18 to 65. They come from all
walks of life---the streets to the suburbs, the educated to
the illiterate, good families to broken homes. Addiction is
no respecter of persons.
In the protective and nurturing environment of the center,
men are separated from the distractions of the world and
given the opportunity to establish a foundation upon which
to build a life of purpose, freedom, and joy. Students
follow a rigorous schedule from morning until evening. Days
begin with a call to physical fitness. Priority is given to
personal hygiene and living quarter cleanliness. Nutritious
meals are prepared and served by the program's food service
department and our local church auxiliary volunteers.
Delmarva Teen Challenge believes that men are changed as
their hearts and minds are renewed with the truth.
During the afternoons, our student’s are afforded the
opportunity to participate in vocational training at the
Thrift Store. Developing people skills, as well as a good
work ethic are important for their success upon graduation.
