From Our House:

Our House has been part of the Portland community since 1988.  Our services have expanded but our commitment to people living with HIV has remained the same.  HIV is a complex and challenging disease that can often be overwhelming.  The Our House team of expert clinicians works with people with HIV 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.
