Get Involved with OCHCH
As the leading industry voice, OCHCH is advancing industry standards by providing home and community-based organizations with the advocacy, education, and regulatory support they need to ensure that individuals receive the highest level of dignity, care, and respect. In order to meet this mission, OCHCH needs volunteers like you! Throughout the year, we need input, insight, and time from our members on a variety of projects, programs, and activities. Members can volunteer by getting involved with one of our committees or participating at an advocacy event.
