“One day soon I hope to give back to the program and people who helped save my life, New Hope Boys Home. I am proud to say I want to go back and work there and give hope to the teens there, just like there where staff there to give me hope. I want to help people and someday I hope that God will open up the doors to allow me to do so. For now, all I can do is pray for that door to be opened.”
“My life now has changed a lot from attending New Hope Boys Home. I know my life is headed down the right path now. I believe that God will be with me here on out.”
“By the time my parents found out about most of my lies, I was addicted to alcohol and into drug abuse, sexually active, a liar, manipulator, and troublemaker within my family. The only one of those that my parents weren’t 100% sure on was the alcohol and drug abuse aspect, but I’m pretty sure they had their suspicions. At New Hope Boys Home I learned what my deeper problems are. I can’t say it was always easy because that would be very far from the truth. There was times when I wanted to give up, but I stuck it out. This program has made me realize how important my family is and I’ll never again take them for granted.”
“Praise God!!! Praise God!!!! Praise God for everything that He has done in our life through having our boy at New Hope Boys Home. What an awesome place.”
“Parenting is fun again after our boy attended New Hope Boys Home. We can’t thank you enough. We have a huge prayer list praying for the staff and every day. We believe in what New Hope Boys Home is doing. God bless all the staff.”

“I have been a volunteer at Teen Challenge for the past four years. While working with the boys in the kitchen I have come to understand that these are not bad boys, just boys that have made bad decisions. I have seen boys arrive with hardened hearts, broken spirits, and messed up lives. I have had the privilege of watching these same boys let God soften their hearts, heal their spirits, and give purpose to their lives. What a blessing they have been to me.
“God directed my steps and changed me one step at a time. He healed all the anger and everything else that was in my life before. I figured out that I couldn’t do things on my own.”
