Opening doors to a better life!

For homeless people living on the street, life can seem like an 
endless downward spiral, with no foothold to start the climb towards a better future. CHOC provides that foothold. Our daytime outreach center in Lancaster offers a safe haven where homeless individuals are 
able to meet their basic hygiene needs and access essential 
human services in a single location. One life at a time, one step
 at a time, CHOC is proving that homelessness is not hopelessness.

We Need Your Help!

CHOC relies solely on private donations to keep its doors open. Through contributions from individuals like you, our Lancaster community center continues to provide daytime homeless outreach and our homelessness programs have helped hundreds of displaced individuals begin on a path to permanent housing and a better life. Will you help us keep this essential work going? * NOTE: Contributions are tax deductible.  

CHOC thanks its corporate contributors!
