Saving Teens® In Crisis Collaborative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in April of 2004 to assist troubled teens and their families struggling with substance abuse and other emotional issues.

Saving Teens works with health organizations, educational consultants, wilderness programs, boarding schools, rehabilitation centers and educational lawyers to fund and support families with financial limitations as they complete the comprehensive therapeutic programs that they desperately need, but may not be able to afford.

By leveraging the expertise and generosity of dedicated professionals, caring institutions, other charities, government institutions and altruistic individuals, Saving Teens guides children and their families towards a brighter future.
