Because of you!

Until we put hope within reach of every addict, Adult and Teen Challenge of Texas will continue to be thankful for support, like yours, that enables us to help so many of our neighbors in need.

Together, we truly are changing lives. Thank you!

Help us meet our year-end fundraising goal!


Merry Christmas from Adult & Teen Challenge. Since TC admits students regardless of their ability to pay, the ministry absorbs the admissions fee for around 55% of students each year. As we approach this year-end, our goal is to raise $15,000 in 2017 scholarship funds to help put hope within reach of every potential student. Click here to help us reach this goal!

We celebrated as 71 students were baptized in the Frio River at our Annual Spiritual Retreat in Leakey, TX. What a vivid picture of the heart change that has already occurred in these students’ lives. Overcome with joy as he emerged out of the water, Connor immediately pointed to the sky and started to praise God.

Chi Alpha missions team blesses ATCOT San Antonio campus


Recently a Chi Alpha mission’s team from UTSA came to the San Antonio Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas campus to serve the men and women in our ATCOT program.  While the Chi Alpha team stayed on the San Antonio campus, they shared devotions, prayed for the Teen Challenge students, and sang praise and worship music with them.  They also built a second fireworks stand, landscaped the campus, organized the entire mechanic’s shop, dug a trench to run internet to our sound room, and had great fellowship with the students. The lives of the Chi Alpha team truly displayed what it means to be devoted to Christ.

“This is far more than we could have asked of them as they encouraged our students,” said San Antonio Men’s Program Coordinator, Austin Baugman.  We’d like to extend a special thanks to Nick Hanson for leading his wonderful Chi Alpha team!”
