Description: Jan Peek is open 365 days a year 24 hours a day.

The mission of Caring for the Homeless of Peekskill Inc. (CHOP) is to alleviate hunger and homelessness in our community by providing temporary housing for homeless adults, and by referring clients to appropriate agencies in order to help them attain independent living.

Jan Peek House is a safe haven for the area's homeless men and women. Our 19-bed facility is open 365 days a year providing shelter, food and a conduit to comprehensive support services. Clients come to us with a broad range of issues. Some are elderly and have lost their jobs and their homes due to illness, while others are young and without families or other means of emotional and financial support. All of them are people who deserve to live with dignity.
