Volunteer Information

OCHCH encourages the participation of volunteers who support our mission. Throughout the year, we need input, insight, and time from our members on a variety of projects, programs, and activities. You can volunteer by getting involved with one of our committees. In general, these committees meet in person four times per year at the OCHCH office in Columbus and participate in seven conference calls per year.
