We help prepare people with a specialized entrepreneur mindset taught by those who were formerly incarcerated. We believe this help with character development, parenting, employment readiness, and social engagement.

We believe that not only is the person being transformed, but our community as well. That is why we have community meetings where our staff, the people coming out of incarceration and the community can engage one another and destroy stigmas. These connections heal worldviews, families, and communities.

As part of the transition and re-entry support, we provide safe and affordable housing with peer mentorship. The peer will help with employment support, positive social networks, and transportation. A peer is defined as someone who was formerly incarcerated that has lived in the shoes of the person they are providing support for.

North Dakota Adult & Teen Challenge

North Dakota Adult & Teen Challenge is A faith-based residential recovery program for people battling with drug and alcohol problems. Adults, ages 18 and over, from every ethnic, socio-economic, and religious background are welcomed with open arms as they embark on their new life. The primary and most important difference between recovery programs and North Dakota Adult & Teen Challenge’s long –term residential program is our emphasis on cultivating an atmosphere where a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can be developed. NDATC realizes that substance abuse is more likely a symptom of much deeper wounds and other life-controlling issues. These issues all represent a broken person urgently needing compassionate, holistic, and empowering help.

Freedom from addiction starts here!
