Who We Help

Describing the typical Ozarks Teen Challenge student or family is difficult, because each family and troubled teen comes to us with their own unique needs. Understanding this diversity, inspires us to understand and meet each of these unique needs through individual discipleship and family reconciliation.

Despite their differences, all of our families do have one thing in common, they love and care for their teens deeply, and want to see them live out happy and healthy lives. Our families are also willing to make difficult choices to ensure those futures and we stand ready to help!

Helping the Entire Family

DSC_7794 copy 3We at Ozarks Teen Challenge know that our mission is to facilitate life transformation for our students and to do so we know that we also need to offer services to the entire family unit.  We strive to involve the families of our troubled teens throughout their program with us.  From individually assigned parent contacts and monthly reports to Family Weekend teachings, services, and Family Check-in Worksheets, we strive to facilitate reconciliation and life transformation far beyond your teens time with us.
