Teen Challenge Peoria is moving!
We have exciting news! After 17-years, we have outlived our building. Due to foundational and fire code issues we are forced to relocate. Through God’s mercy and grace, we have obtained property at 2400 8th St. in Pekin (just left of Ray Dennison Chevrolet on Rte. 29). The property, formerly known as Comfort Plus Hospice, is now the new home to Central Illinois Teen Challenge-Men’s Division. This move will allow us to triple our current bed space. The additional enrollment allows us to reach more who are lost and hurting to provide opportunity at a life free from the bondage of addiction. The move also opens doors for Teen Challenge to be more effective in the community through outreach and volunteerism.
The new location will also allow us to provide transitional housing as part of our aftercare program. How transitional housing works, when a man graduates, he can commit to a three month internship, at which time we help them prepare a resume’ and find employment. During this process, we educate them on money management and lifestyle choices while providing accountability. When they are ready to return to the community, we assist them in finding adequate housing to support them on their journey to being productive citizens.
In order for us to achieve this vision, we need your help. Renovations to the property are necessary prior to occupying. The target goal is $400,000.

This 14-month character development program offers a daily regiment of structured, disciplined living.
The results have been absolutely incredible.
Have you watched a loved one as they struggle with addiction? Their eyes fading and the smell of death that is upon them. How about your children? Do you worry about their safety with the increase of drug use in parks and on school campuses?
Are you tired of the high crime rate? Are you ready for change? It’s time to take back your home, your school, and your neighborhood. You can make a difference in your community today by taking the “Dollar-A-Day Difference” challenge. Yes, it’s true! For as little as one dollar a day you can sponsor a student in the Teen Challenge Peoria Men’s Division program. How is this possible?
Our goal is to reach 1,000 concerned individuals who say enough is enough. I want to make a difference and will donate $1 a day for one year. As a non-profit organization, this support will enable Teen Challenge Peoria to continue its fight in the war on drugs. Help us help you. Together we will take back our community.
