About the Hoving Home
Since June 1967, the Hoving Home has been a center for hope for hundreds of women who reclaimed their lives after drug and alcohol abuse.
The Hoving Home is a residential spiritually-based home that is a non-profit organization that serves women ages 18 and over who have been involved in drug addiction, alcoholism, prostitution and other life-controlling problems. The 6- or 12-month programs help them to rebuild their lives in an atmosphere of warmth, trust, support and love.
The Hoving Home has four homes for women located in CA, NY, NJ and Las Vegas Nevada. Since opening in 1967 the Hoving Home has impacted the lives of 23,216 women.
The women live there for a year, paying a $500 entry fee and $500 a month. It costs about $2,000 a month per woman to run the home. The program, which boasts an 86 percent success rate, receives no government assistance.
The program includes daily devotions, reading the Bible in its entirety, and each woman facing her addiction by understanding what led her down that path, whether it was grief, rejection, abandonment, molestation or some other factor.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Hoving Home, find more information on their website or if you are interested in the other events that Glen Lerner and his foundation, Glen Lerner Gives Back, will be participating in, visit the Gives Back section on our website today. We invite you to get involved today.

Impact’s 2018 Back to School
Let me begin with the words, “thank you” as a way to express my heart felt gratitude for your assistance in underwriting this year’s Back to School Block Party. It’s but a few days after the event, and the process of putting everything away will take a while, but in my mind is the huge crowd that was here, and how much they appreciated everything. Allow me to give you a brief review:
*We started setup promptly at 11, and already the crowd had started forming. We began immediately to set up canopies to provide relief from the sun, and took out tables and chairs to make the waiting more comfortable.
*We began at 1, with all the canopies in place, snow cone, popcorn, and cotton candy machines al ready running. Hot dogs were being served, games now being played, and backpacks being disbursed. Each child would pick a backpack color containing teacher requested supplies (grade appropriate), receiving also ear buds, a dental hygiene kit, a New Testament, a box of Girl Scout cookies, coupons for food/appetizers from Texas Corral and/or Chick-Fil-A, and pencils, paper, ink pens, etc. After receiving the back pack, then it was on to the socks/underwear distribution points. The lines were steady for well over 2 hours.
*Throughout the afternoon, we hosted a magic show and a “Carol’s Cuisine Fruit of the Spirit pie baking class,” along with haircuts, nail polishing, games, jump houses, volleyball, ice cream from Culvers, peanuts from Texas Corral, and just about everything to entertain a child, while parents and grandparents looked through the 25+ tables full of good used clothing.
About 750 backpacks were distributed to the children/youth of Merrillville/Gary/Hobart/Lake Station/Calumet Township. We have tracking on all the students and will use that information to see how else we can serve the many families in our area.
Thank you! You helped make all this (and so much more) possible on August 11. Thank you for your generosity, your love and concern for the children/youth of this area, and the encouragement given to not only students, but parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles as they direct their children to return well prepared to the classrooms to achieve, grow and become tomorrows adults. Thank you.

On Friday, June 22, the team at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys will do our part to spread hope to those who so desperately need it. From 9:30am to 11:00am, we will be at the Indiana Hope Center in Crown Point, Indiana, packing and sending the light of hope in the form of care packages with Phil’s Friends. Our team is excited to lend our time to such a noble cause.
Phil’s Friends and Their Mission of Hope
Phil’s Friends is a nonprofit, Christian agency with the mission to bring hope and support to those battling cancer in the United States. They do this by providing care packages and weekly Cards of Hope to patients and their families. They also invoke the power of prayer to assist and support cancer patients on their road to recovery.
Founder Phil Zielke knows exactly how that kind of hopelessness and defeat can cloud one’s mindset after a cancer diagnosis. As a two-time cancer survivor himself, Mr. Zielke is no stranger to these feelings. These feelings of despair can have a crippling effect on not only the patient, but their family as well. That is why Phil’s Friends is committed to being the light for families that have found themselves in the dark. A caring volunteer assembles each package with items to bring comfort and joy to its recipient. Along with the care packages, patients will also receive weekly encouragement from our volunteers in the form of Cards of Hope. These hand-colored cards aim to let the patient and their family know that they have more people in their corner praying for their recovery.
“A cancer diagnosis can leave a person feeling hopeless, alone, scared, and helpless. These feelings aren’t limited to the person who receives the diagnosis. Cancer can send shockwaves throughout a whole family. We make a living out of bringing people closure during some of their darkest times. Volunteering with Phil’s Friends gives us the chance to be the bearers of light in a seemingly hopeless situation,” says attorney Glen Lerner. “We are excited and proud to give our time and energy to provide hope to those who need the strength to continue one of the hardest fights of their life.”
