Walter Hoving Home
The Walter Hoving Home (WHH) is a residential, spiritually-based recovery center serving women ages 18 and over who have been involved in drug addiction, alcoholism, prostitution, and other life-controlling problems. The 6 or 12-month program is geared towards rebuilding shattered lives in an atmosphere of warmth, trust, support, and love.
The Home was founded in 1967 by John and Elsie Benton. It is named after the CEO of Tiffany’s Jewelry Company who was the key link to funding for the original WHH. The first piece of Tiffany’s silver jewelry was created to raise funds for the Home.
