Christopher House of Hope (CHOH) is now open in West Palm Beach, Florida. We have 60+ beds available for both men and women whose objective is to become a productive member of society. CHOH has assisted over 3800 people over the last 10 years
Christopher House was founded in 2001 in West Palm Beach, Florida, by Chris Occhipinti. We have assisted hundreds of individuals to become productive members of society and transitioned others with the welfare to work program.
Christopher House also serves the state and local courts, assisting in the transitioning of nonviolent offenders back into a productive role in society. In Florida, 97% of the individuals sentenced to Christopher House have successfully completed the program. We provide a new beginning to those who need it and want it. Building a stable foundation and learning new life skills is part of the experience that is Christopher House.
