Teen Challenge in Germany (TCD) is a non-profit, and interdenominational faith-based organization with 14 locations. TCD works with people in need; especially addicts and those who are mentally ill.
Through our work we want to contribute to enabling people to live free. We help:
addicted and mentally ill people, as well as those with other serious, life-controlling problems.
children and adolescents who suffer from addiction.
people who are continuously weakened by their addiction or mental problems, are who need a stabile environment.
There are 5 Teen Challenge Residential Therapy Houses that provide help for people with life-controlling problems in order to be able to handle their daily lives responsibly. The target group mainly includes addicted and mentally ill men and women (separate locations). The assistence provided is based on the Christian concept of Teen Challenge. The belief in the God of the Bible and his/her own desire for change plays a key role. All employees of TCD are committed Christians who strive to be role models and good consultants for all clients.
TCD also offers outreach street work projects, counseling services and psychological help for those in need.
In October, two centers from TC Germany have uploaded a video about the work they do. These TC centers are located in Emsland and in Gutes Land. The videos are in German, but even if you don't understand this language, they give a good impression of the work Teen Challenge does in Germany. We hope you enjoy these videos.
