The Walter Hoving Home (Hoving Home) is a nonprofit, residential discipleship program for women recovering from life-controlling issues such as human-trafficking, prostitution, abuse, drug addiction, alcoholism and judicial proceedings. While trapped in these circumstances, many women feel without hope for the future. Those who come to Hoving's survivor homes for help have need of total physical, mental, spiritual and emotional restoration. The women, of which over 90% are low-income, live on site. Residents benefit from a program tailored to enable them to regain their lives, establish a healthy work ethic, gain financial stability and return to their families having become productive members of their communities. Hoving's Career Readiness Program helps residents obtain their GEDs, attain work related skills and receive an education focusing on financial empowerment.
