Vermont Crisis and Outreach Center

197 West St • Rutland, VT • 802-635-7807

The outreach house of Adult & Teen Challenge Vermont operates in Rutland, where we offer coffee and quality meals to the under-served multiple days a week. It is also a house for information on our programs in Johnson and Hardwick.

The Rutland team is comprised of volunteers from local churches and influential members of the community in the Rutland area, giving back their time by serving meals and ministering to those that are less fortunate. Along with this team, the men and women of Adult and Teen Challenge Vermont and Northern New England Women’s centers host an event called Freedom Friday, an evening of food, fellowship, worship and encouraging testimonies. Many have given their lives to Christ at this event and some have even entered our program as well.

Our property at 197 West Street also has transition rooms for our graduates, providing safe residence to assure them a cohesive transition back into the community. Rutland offers a metropolitan economy for our transitional residents. The residents can stay one year while working, saving money, and staying involved in the culture and structure that Adult & Teen Challenge creates.

Our End Addiction Team is active throughout the year in Rutland. This team operates as a mobile crisis convoy with a comprehensive campaign. They travel each week to a different region, city, or town to raise funds, distribute drug awareness literature, and share their stories of hope to the hurting.

Rutland has seen our missions grow considerably in their community. Local ministries, shelters, and businesses have joined arms with us to establish our property in Rutland, giving the addicted in their city key-link access to our residential recovery center in Johnson. 

We welcome you to join the fight with us for Rutland County. We see the potential in Rutland to become the epicenter for hope and recovery for the whole state of Vermont. Thank you for your prayer and support!
