Program Description
The Teen Challenge Kansas City Girls Home is a fifteen-month residential discipleship program. The students experience a structured and disciplined environment with the emphasis placed on authentic relationships beginning with a relationship with Jesus Christ. When a person is truly serving God, they can begin to enjoy healthy relationships with family and friends. The student residences, kitchen/dining and school are in located in the 10,000 sq. ft. main center. With over twelve acres, we have ample areas for physical activity including a pool.

We employ a team of residential, education and counseling staff who have the appropriate experience for their roles. Team members live in the main building residence and on campus to insure the safety and well being of the students. Doug Anderson, the Director, and his family live only a short drive away.

A core belief of the Teen Challenge program is that the Holy Spirit does the work of life transformation in the students. To help facilitate this transformation the students are challenged in their interactions with staff and peers to live a Godly example. Each student also participates in one-on-one counseling focusing on issues they need to address, group counseling, Bible studies, chapel and work projects to help them learn core character traits such as responsibility, integrity, honesty and respect for authority. Our goal is for students to grow toward spiritual maturity leading them to honor God, honor their family, honor leaders, honor others and honor themselves.

Your daughter will be educated at our private Christian school, Highlands Academy. We utilize the Apex Learning curriculum. Each student takes classes focused on the core subjects of Mathematics, Science, Language Arts, and History. Students also receive credit for physical education and choir.

The Teen Challenge Kansas City Girls Home is a place of life transformation for troubled teen girls. Each student is provided the time, teaching and opportunity that are necessary for lives to be mended, relationships to be restored and the love of Christ to grow.
