The Alpha Omega Sorority was established in 2008 by Michele Boghossian. As a California Advisory Board Member, she felt compelled to help women who complete the Walter Hoving Home stay connected, as they transition and reenter society. Alpha Omega’s goal is to help women continue to “Abide in Christ” after completion. The foundational principles of the organization are God, Grace, Forgiveness, Fellowship and Service.
It is an amazing community of women to connect with and share life experiences with. The sorority meets quarterly where they share a devotional, evaluate needs for prayer and discuss projects that they are participating in. It’s a remarkable network of women that spans across many cultural, economic, and professional arenas.
The Alpha Omega colors are purple for Christ’s royalty and white for His purity. Alpha, signifying the beginning, is displayed in purple to represent the woman’s new life in Christ and Omega, which denotes the end, is shown in white and symbolizes that their relationship with Christ is eternal. Every new member is welcomed in with a special induction ceremony where they are given flowers, a sorority pin and shirt, and pledge an oath to help others, who have been where they were.
Alpha Omega is branching to the East Coast and it encourages all its members to attend Hoving Home events and activities, proudly wear & display their sorority pin, and continually pray for current residents.
