"Our Community House of Hope" Readies to Take First Residents, Seeks Donations to Make House a Home

PRLog - Aug. 3, 2011 - THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF.--"Our Community House of Hope" (OCHH), a local nonprofit organization that will provide end-of-life care at no charge, is readying its first home to accept residents. OCHH plans to open the home in the fall. It is currently seeking a variety of donated items and funding to make the house a home for the terminally ill.

   The four-bedroom Thousand Oaks home is already accessible for wheelchairs and contains the safety features required by the Department of Social Services. OCHH is looking for gently used recliners, a small table and four chairs, lamps, a flat screen TV, baby monitor, flashlights, hand bells, cleaning supplies and other items.

   "We have been in the fundraising mode since 2005 and we're now close to seeing our dream of providing a loving, dignified, end-of-life care home in Ventura County become a reality," says Teresa Wolf, OCHH board president. "This home will provide a loving alternative for end-of-life care to those who have no available caregiver or means to pay for care. OCHH will not charge for its services. We seek our funding from the community through individual gifts, memorials, grants and support from civic organizations and faith communities.”

   OCHH serves Ventura and Northwest Los Angeles counties. For more information about Our Community House of Hope and for the entire list of needed items, go to http://www.ourhouseofhope.org.

The OCHH mission is to establish and operate a loving end-of-life care home; provide quality care and access to hospice services at no cost to residents and their families; and to develop an educational center for end-of-life care issues.
