What to Expect
While you are in this program, you are going to find yourself challenged in many areas of your life, as you take responsibility as part of the Hoving Home Family, and as you begin to read God’s Word. Through our family and Christ’s example, you will discover many wonderful and exciting principles that will help you to live a productive life in Christ.
We will provide you with an atmosphere of love and support in which you will be able to learn about God and get to know Him intimately. We are committed to serving you, teaching you, and helping you to find strength and love in your relationship with Jesus Christ. Please feel free to share your hurts, needs and concerns with us, because we are here for you. We will become like a family to you!
Our program is founded on a family concept, which is designed to show you a new way of life—a life that is filled with great hope, joy and a wonderful future. As you apply yourself, we believe your life will be changed forever. The program is designed to increasingly challenge you and strengthen your Christian life.
It is our desire that our Home be a place that is characterized and directed by Christian principles and values, not rules. As family members, we must love one another, demonstrate respect and cooperation, and meet the requirements, which are critical to our progress and the effectiveness of the Home.
These are our family values at the Hoving Home:
We will treat everyone with dignity and respect.
We will not complain.
We will always be a part of the solution, not the problem.
Our relationships will be guided by 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 Equal in relationship; different in function.
We will support each one’s potential and giftedness.
We will give superior service and do everything with excellence.

The Alpha Omega Sorority
The Alpha Omega Sorority was established in 2008 by Michele Boghossian. As a California Advisory Board Member, she felt compelled to help women who complete the Walter Hoving Home stay connected, as they transition and reenter society. Alpha Omega’s goal is to help women continue to “Abide in Christ” after completion. The foundational principles of the organization are God, Grace, Forgiveness, Fellowship and Service.
Show your support and congratulate our ladies for completing the hoving home program!
"At the Hoving Home, we see women come into our program who have fallen down and their lives our shattered. Their hope has been crushed and they can’t see a way out or a different way. But they come here, and it is amazing to watch the transformation as God begins to restore hope and they have a glimpse of their life looking different."
