It depends on the motivation of the applicant. It can be from 2 to 6 weeks.
What is the cost?
Life Challenge asks residents to provide $500.00 a month to support their stay. However, we understand that some residents cannot support their stay due to financial hardships. Therefore, we ask the applicant or her family to donate what they can monthly. We have never turned away a person in need because of lack of financial funding. The only thing that is required is a $200 entrance fee, $100 for a bus ticket in case the applicant decides to leave, and $100 for the applicants personal account.
How long is the program?
Our Program is at least 12 months.
What should I bring with me when I enter the program?
A suggested clothing list will be given to you upon acceptance into the program.
What does a typical day look like?

Do you offer counseling?
Life Challenge provides several types of counseling. Some of the types offered are: substance abuse, group, Pastoral/Christ-centered, and individual counseling. Individual counseling addresses issues concerning depression, grief, family, etc. We provide over 300 hours of counseling per resident per year.
