Mission, Vision, and Purpose
Welcome To Challenge House
The Challenge House concept is based on the premise that some men and women have mission-hearts, but prefer to live out their faith dealing with the problems here in our own country. The primary goal is to link the lives of the children and adults living in the inner-city with the lives of men and women of resource. Without daily interaction from men and women who have achieved a measure of success in their lives, most inner-city residents will not have a sustainable support system to help them improve their neighborhood and lifestyle. It’s all about “love thy neighbor!” With the idea of Hull-House as an inspiration, and with the “relocation” so stressed by the CCDA, the concept of the Challenge House Movement was born. The mostly dilapidated houses within our inner-city are acquired and renovated with a variety of volunteer and paid labor. The Houses remain as community resources to be occupied by persons who stress Christian faith, hope, courage, and education.
