Adult and Teen Challenge in Brandon hopes to see lots of supporters at its annual fund-raising banquet Monday, November 14.

Adult & Teen Challenge is a faith-based discipleship program aimed at helping people who are struggling with addiction. It started back in 1958.

Development Director Aaron Murray says this year’s theme is “Be Part of the Story.” The banquet will take place at the Clarion Hotel. We invite people to come and be part of the story of our students and the program and partnering with us either financially or through prayer.”

Murray notes they are trying to raise about $150,000.

“We need funds to buy a tractor, a skid steer or a truck with a plow for our Women’s Centre as the one we had broke down and we’re trying to find a solution for that as soon as possible.”

Support at the Super Thrift Store in Brandon has been steady.

“We thank everyone who has been shopping or dropping things off there.”

The Brandon Women’s Home is a safe place for women with life-controlling addictions to find the freedom they’ve been searching for. Located on a small acreage fifteen minutes Northwest of Brandon the addiction treatment centre is an ideal setting to take the steps necessary for restoration and wholeness.

The main house has a capacity for 16 clients and 5 graduates with classrooms and a large, open concept living room and dining room.

The group would also like to build a heated shed at the Women’s Home to keep house vehicles and snow removal equipment.
