Teen Challenge is dedicated to enabling people to live addiction-free lives. Teen Challenge recognizes that addiction is a serious and overwhelming issue and hopelessness can be debilitating.

One Eighty

One Eighty began out of the testimony of the founder of this organization, Rusty Boruff.  Rusty spent many years as a homeless addict who eventually found himself sitting in Cell 121. A few years later, he and a few of his friends bought a trailer for $500 and began what we now know as, One Eighty. One Eighty prevents crisis, poverty, and addiction before it happens by helping people build a relationship with Jesus Christ and assisting local churches and organizations to connect with their communities.

The Meagan Napier Foundation

On May 11, 2002, a drunk driver killed Renée Napier’s daughter, Meagan, and Meagan’s friend, Lisa.  The driver, Eric Smallridge, was sentenced to 22 years in prison. In the midst of grieving the loss of her daughter, Renée came to forgive Eric, lead a successful campaign to have his sentence changed to 11 years and, in turn, Eric decided to make something positive out of his tragic mistake. In 2004, Renée began her journey giving DUI presentations at a multitude of venues, including high schools, colleges, military bases, churches, prisons and the NFL. In April 2010, Eric was granted permission to join Renée in her speaking campaign.
