Our Community House of Hope (OCHH) was founded in the fall of 2005 by a group of healthcare professionals and community leaders who came together, all with the common vision of helping the growing numbers of terminally ill in their communities. Each of these founding members have had personal and professional experience with death and dying that has changed them and made them aware of the need to help the many alone and suffering people who need a compassionate caring home as they face their last days. The OCHH committee members are community leaders who are committed and motivated to make this hospice house a reality.
A four-bedroom Thousand Oaks home is being rented by OCHH and is already accessible for wheelchairs and contains the safety features required by the Department of Social Services. Plans are to take its first residents in Fall 2011.
