Mission & History

Since 1969, the mission of Adult and Teen Challenge of Arkansas (formerly known as Teen Challenge of Arkansas) has been to provide residential faith-based help for those who struggle with life controlling problems, such as addiction. We are a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization that began in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1981, the program moved to a rural campus just north of Hot Springs. Today, on 45 acres, there is a dormitory, garage and shop, shower house, a learning center, dining hall and kitchen that also has family visitation rooms, a log chapel, staff housing, and an administrative building that also houses the Vintage Mall thrift store.
