With the growing epidemic the wolrd is facing, addicts and families know the struggle of finding an open bed at a treatment center for those who want to change their life. I cannot tell you how many times I struck out calling places trying to get my brother Jeff a bed somewhere. We had a list we would go down every single time--striking out with either full-capacity or insurance issues. Turned away when he wanted help. With this struggle, time is VERY important. Teen Challenge has recognized this problem and is working to FIGHT against this epidemic. Various fundraising events allowed this organization to be able to start building a new treatment center in Brockton, MA. Today, the Brockton Men's campus is at maximum capacity and they are expanding, building a short-term treatment center to keep up with the demand to make sure that they NEVER have to turn anybody away! Their "Expanding Borders" Fundraising Campaign is being MATCHED dollar for dollar up to $50,000!! The campaign culminates with their "Expanding Borders" Banquet taking place on Saturday, October 14th at our Brockton, MA campus. The banquet is an important fundraiser that will ensure the treatment center gets up and running soon! In the words of my brother, "Don't talk about it, be about it!" Let's help make changes and fight this epidemic!!
