Mike and Cindy Zello are the founders of Teen Challenge Northern Virginia (TCNV) which includes a home for men and a home for Women and Children.

Teen Challenge Fredericksburg is a 4 month, residential discipleship program providing mentoring, education, training and spiritual direction for men who are struggling with destructive, abusive and life-controlling issues.

Beauty for Ashes Women and Children’s Home is a 9 to 12 month residential Teen Challenge program for adult women with children that provides a safe, stable, and loving home environment for women with life-controlling problems. An effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based curriculum, life skills training, life applications, and Church and community involvement lead to mental, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual wholeness.
