Alumni Project 2016-2017

Bloom Adolescent Girls Home
Bloom will open its doors to young ladies in January 2017.
We're preparing our leadership team and our home.
This short-term adolescent girls program will be the ONLY girls program of its kind in the eastern United States.
It will be part of our proven Teen Challenge network-offering troubled teens, between the ages of 12 and 17, freedom by the power of Jesus Christ. 


Please prayerfully consider going above and beyond right now.
Give generously to help us launch this new program, for the sake of young girls that need a place like Bloom.


Make a contribution to Bloom.

Teen Challenge rejoices with all its alumni who continue to live a
changed life long after graduation!

For with God nothing will be impossible. Luke 1:37

May you be blessed as you read Jay's testimony.
Where Are They Now?
Testimony of Jayson Favazza
     My name is Jayson Favazza. I am 33 years old and I am from Gloucester, Massachusetts. I was raised in a good home and had good morals instilled in me at an early age by my loving parents. I grew up playing sports my entire life and as I got older, “the jocks” had a party mentality, so I just fell in line with the crowd.  I got into drinking, along with selling and using drugs at a very young age. 
     As my life progressed, my addiction to OxyContin and heroin spiraled out of control.  At age 27, I found myself homeless, jobless, and broken, with all my options exhausted, except one.  I entered the doors of Teen Challenge on April 27, 2010. I enrolled because of the plea of my mother and sister, to simply give my family a little bit of peace.  However, after I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I understood that I had to do this program for myself.  I realized that a junkie could be transformed, could be made new and could become a person of integrity.  What I did not realize, nor could I imagine, was the many other new things God had in store for me!
     Today I have been with Teen Challenge for a little over six years and I could not have asked for a better place to grow my relationship with God.  I serve at the Boston campus as the program supervisor and I am blessed to be able to give back to people who were just as hopeless as I was.  I am also excited to share that on May 14th, 2016 I married the love of my life whom I met at Teen Challenge.  I never imagined that a life such as this could be possible for me when I entered the doors of Teen Challenge in 2010, but everyday God reminds me that with Him….ALL things are possible!!
We are pleased to announce the publication of Changed Lives Book 3 - Ten True Stories From Addiction to Freedom.  
All or any one of the Changed Lives books would make great presents for someone you know that is struggling with their own or a loved one's addiction.
You can find Changed Lives books on our online store along with other products that would make great Christmas gifts and at the same time support Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey!
Please don't forget to use AmazonSmile when shopping for other gifts online. Another great way to support Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey! Thank you!
