To enter our 14 month men’s residential Christian discipleship program, we ask for a $700 induction fee which covers part of the cost of curriculum and housing. However, this contribution only goes so far. There is also a $185 blood test fee, unless the blood work is done by the student’s private doctor. A TB skin test is required before admission. We also encourage the families or sponsors who can provide monthly support, ranging from $100 to $250 a month, to partner with us, in order to see the lives of men changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Estimates show that our costs range from $800 to $1000 per month per student to operate Mercy House Teen Challenge. We are a 501(c)(3), and do not receive any State or Federal funding, so all of our needs are met through donations and monthly support from our faithful Mercy House family, as well as churches who believe in this ministry. We also generate finances through our outside work details, fundraisers, and rallies. We know that, if we strive to the best of our abilities, God will be faithful and provide the rest.
