Units Constructed or Rehabilitated
OCCH is committed to our core business and mission—creating opportunities for working families, seniors, and special needs populations in rural, urban, and suburban communities to obtain affordable, stabilizing housing. We go where our partners take us to have the most impact for the most people.
Home is a feeling of belonging, a place where you can be yourself, a place where you can age in comfort, a place where your children can find security and stability. OCCH works with caring, experienced, and innovative partners who create affordable homes for just these reasons.
Our portfolio includes homes for seniors, families and special needs populations, and includes workforce housing, housing for student parents attending college, housing that transitions youth from foster care, recovery housing with a rehabilitation component, and even unique yurt-style homes.
Home is a place that is with you always, and we welcome you.
