About Our House:

Our House provides healthcare, housing, and other vital services to low-income people living with HIV/AIDS.

Our House has been part of the Portland community since 1988.  Our services have expanded but our commitment to people living with HIV/AIDS has remained the same.  HIV/AIDS is a complex and challenging disease that can often be overwhelming.  The Our House team of expert clinicians works with people with advanced HIV/AIDS who are having difficulty managing independent living.  They tailor services for each individual that defines what “living well” means to them.

Over the years we have expanded services that now range from regular in-home visits by clinical staff to 24-hour residential skilled nursing services.  As the health of a resident or client improves or declines, we are able to continue to provide services within our continuum of care.

Our programs and services include: Our House, Neighborhood Housing & Care Program, Esther’s Pantry and Tod’s Corner.

Our House maintains an inclusive community where values, experiences and identities are accepted, where respect for differences is shared and where questions, dialogue and education are encouraged.

Our House is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization based in Portland, Oregon (USA).

About Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids: Our organization is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 BC/EFA has raised more than $225 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States. 
Broadway Cares awards annual grants to more than 450 AIDS and family service organizations nationwide and is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative, the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic, The Dancers’ Resource and the Stage Managers’ Project.
