MN Adult and Teen Challenge Making Changes to Northland Campus

Created: February 12, 2019 08:53 AM

Changes are coming to MN Adult and Teen Challenge's Northland campus. The nonprofit has purchased the building located next to their current facility on East 2nd St. 

The building, which is a former apartment complex, is being renovated and will be made, partly, into rooms for current and future clients. Center Director Brandon Torgerson says the addition will allow the campus to increase their bed size from 54 to 62.

"It'll be dorm-style living," Torgerson says.

Lower level rooms will be converted into offices. 

Representatives from the organization will once again be at the Duluth Boat, Sports, Travel & RV Show. Those who stop by their booth will be able to see the different recovery programs they have to offer. Attendees will also have the chance to enter into a raffle for a painting made by local artist Stuart Nelson.

The painting depicts a pair of sun fish looking at a fishing line that has an antique bobber, hook and worm attached. 

"These two guys (fish) are sizing each other up," Nelson says. "They're both moving towards the worm and usually the one that makes the first move doesn't get it."

Proceeds from the raffle will go toward the nonprofit.
