What We Do
Helping people overcome addiction every day
The Teen Challenge GTA Women’s Centre helps women to overcome addictions by developing the whole person. Students learn character and leadership skills, positive health and recreation behaviours, they learn to express themselves through the arts and are given the opportunity to develop life skills.
This program also provides opportunities for students to learn planning and decision-making skills and to learn to contribute to Teen Challenge and the community.
Within this 24-hour program up to 26 women live and grow together toward healthy lives free from addictions. Learn More
