Our Mission

Appalachian Teen Challenge, Inc. provides effective Christian discipleship training for persons experiencing life-controlling problems.

This is accomplished through spiritual and academic instruction, behavior management, work skills and ethics training, life management training, and emotional support, all delivered within a disciplined and regimented atmosphere.


Comprehensive, residential training aids the person in becoming mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, and spiritually alive.

By applying Biblical principles to relationships in the family, local church, chosen vocation, and the community, the person can then function as a productive member of society.

Appalachian Teen Challenge, Inc. also assists communities by conducting educational and spiritual outreach programs.

We also provide residential care for girls age 17-30 through our sister center located in Fincastle, Virginia and we provide crisis intervention and referral services through our centers located in Bridgeport, West Virginia and Roanoke, Virginia.
