El Paso was once considered the largest city in the United States without
a Christ based center. In 2007, Pastor Albert (Executive Director) & Martha Ibarra (Bookkeeper) moved their family from Midland, TX, where they served on the staff of Teen Challenge Permian Basin
for over 20 years, to open a residential center in El Paso, TX. The purpose of the residential program is to enable individuals to find freedom from addictive behavior, to become socially and
emotinally healthy, physically well and spiritually alive. We operate a 12 bed Women's resedential faclitiy and a 12 bed Men's resedential facility.
Our 10-12 month long program is completely free of charge to the Men,
Women and their Families. We ask that each student ready to enter the program is tired of the life they have been living and ready to make a long-term commitment to the Lord and to complete the
program. The individual, family, and the entire community benefit from the services provided by Freedom in Christ Residental Centers.
