About Us

Our team is comprised of dedicated individuals who have experienced the impact of addiction firsthand.

Mission

To radically change the lives of drug addicts, alcoholics, and those who love them.

Vision

A program in which 100% of our graduates are still sober for the rest of their lives, where we have homes all across the United States in which our graduates lead these programs, lead men/women to long term sobriety and Jesus Christ every day.

Where our men/women have changed the face of recovery worldwide. Where each of our graduate's stories have been told thousands of times, written about and followed by other men/women like an instruction manual to radical life change.

The Hope is Alive Program will be responsible for millions of months of sobriety and thousands of lives saved. We will redefine the way people get and stay sober. We will radically change the way, on a basic level, humans interact with each other, always offering grace and kindness, but not backing down on holding others accountable.

Our Founders

Lance & Ally Lang

Our Founders have an incredible story of love, restoration, and recovery. Meeting in 2009, their quick engagement was just as quickly ended when the depths of Lance’s addiction was made public. As Lance started recovery from his drug addiction & alcoholism, Ally began to realize she needed recovery from the relationship trauma that come with loving an addict. In early 2013, with a dream in his heart, Lance began looking at homes to start Hope is Alive and Ally was there with him every step of the way. Later that year, when Lance released his first book, Hope is Alive, it was Ally who planned and pulled off the Launch Party. A few months later, making good on a promise from God, Lance began planning for the first ever Night of Hope event. Planned by... you guessed it; Ally.

By the Summer of 2015, Lance and Ally had fully rekindled and restored their relationship and had their eyes set on a life together, but God had one more BIG surprise in-store. Through her daily devotionals God begin speaking to Ally about joining the ministry in a full-time capacity. God was calling her to open the first HIA Women’s Home, and in December of that year, that’s what she did.

Since Allyson officially joined the HIA team, Hope is Alive has exploded, opening 6 homes in less than 3 years! Lance & Ally Lang provide vision & leadership to the entire Hope is Alive team. Ally’s unique recovery story & never-ending energy makes her the perfect leader for the HIA Mentoring Homes Program. While Lance’s business background & passion for radical life-change perfectly suits him to oversee the development, outreach, office & marketing areas of the ministry.

Today, the fruit of Lance & Ally’s relationship and story is evident in the hundreds of lives that have been changed through Hope is Alive Ministries. They lead our tribe well and for that we are so grateful.
