About Us

Our Mission

OCCHC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to transition extremely low-income families to greater self-sufficiency by assisting with housing and education. Its founding in 1977 was based on the principle that our low-wage families deserve safe housing and safe neighborhoods so that their children would have the same education benefits as those from more affluent neighborhoods.

Our Vision

OCCHC has a vision of a community in which every working family has decent housing and that they have an equal educational environment. 

Our Values

Values and principles guide OCCHC's work:
  • Those who are most vulnerable in society have voices and should be heard.
  • Diversity and Inclusivity are essential for the creativity and innovation. 
  • The nurturance of individuals and families fosters the growth of healthy communities. 
  • Partnerships, collaboration, and civic participation are fundamental to improving organizations and institutions, and to assuring sustainable social change. 
  • The fostering of healthy human development emphasizes prevention over treatment.
