Our Founders

Lance & Allyson lang

Our Founders have an incredible story of love, restoration, and radical recovery. Meeting in 2009, their quick engagement was just as quickly ended when the depths of Lance’s addiction were made public. As Lance started recovering from his drug addiction and alcoholism, Ally began to realize she needed recovery from the relationship trauma that comes 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.

The 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 and lead men/women to long-term sobriety each and every day.


Where our men/women have changed the face of recovery worldwide. Where each of our graduate’s stories has 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 is 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.
