The Group's Purpose

Teen Challenge Canada's first Women's Centre in King City has served over one hundred women battling addiction since inception in 2008. Women in this residential program are twice as likely to break their addiction over other typical rehab programs thanks to TCC's intensive intervention strategy and a year-long commitment by clients to developing new behavioural patterns.

This $100,000 project will contribute to maximizing the ability of staff to track progress for their clients through a customized information technology solution. This will be uniquely designed for the highly individualized program offered at the women's centre, and once piloted there, will be rolled out to all TCC locations across Canada. Clients will benefit from an increased ability to track progress, commit to goals, and report success.

How to Help

Let's come together and multiply Rebecca Horwood's $25,000 pledge. Charitable donations by friends and family are eligible to be multiplied by four other Stronger Together clients in 2017 to reach our goal. Each individual donation, large or small, matters.

As well, please join us in attending a Toronto dance competition where Rebecca with partner Nathaniel will compete. Their carefully-choreographed Argentinian tango is dedicated to the women of the Teen Challenge GTA Women's Centre, and funds will be awarded to break addictions and establish new, healthy habits. Women in the program are twice as likely to break their addiction over typical rehab centers thanks to TCC’s intensive intervention strategy and a year-long commitment by clients to developing new behavior patterns.
