The Pensacola Teen Challenge Women’s Program is designed to
assist adult women age 18 and above with life-controlling
issues. The residential faith-based program is 12 months in
length (minimum), and provides pastoral counseling, Christian
education classes, sound structure and discipline, and
opportunities to gain work-related skills.
The women who commit to making a definite life-change will
benefit greatly from the program. the Women’s Center staff is
committed to doing everything possible to help each student make
the necessary changes to move on in life, and to help restore
not only the student, but also the families of each student.
Our goal is to help each student regain a better quality of life
through prayer, counseling, spiritual foundation and
accountability, and biblical guidance in the choices that will
be made concerning their future.
Transform--(verb) 1. To change markedly in
appearance or form. 2. To change in nature or condition. Change is difficult, and for those who are trapped in
life-controlling situations, change requires effort and
discipline, and surrender to God. Teen Challenge provides a
faith-based, safe haven for students while the transformation
process is accomplished.
In every case, a student must be willing to change in order for
change to occur. The Teen Challenge adult women's program is
designed to be a minimum of one year in length, but in many
situations, students stay longer than the required year. The
longer a student remains in the program, the greater the
potential for long-term recovery becomes.
Our hopes for every student that comes to Teen Challenge is that
each student adopt a willingness to do whatever it takes to
change. Our desire is to see every student become productive in
everyday life, return home to be better fathers, husbands and
sons, and remain free from the bondage that addictions bring.
And above all, the staff of Pensacola Teen Challenge desires to
see each student and their families secure in the salvation and
experience of God's grace, for it is by God's grace that true
change will remain.
