Our House provides care for low income people with HIV/AIDS through specialized 24-hour residential care for up to 14 people with acute care needs. Our House also provides interdisciplinary care and housing assistance in the community for those at risk of losing their independence or transitioning to lower levels of care. They also provide a food bank, free thrift store, pet care and other non-typical services in a safe, stigma free environment for this vulnerable population.
Our House of Portland offers the following programs and services:
- Our House is a residential care facility that provides services for people with HIV/AIDS where residents work with skilled professionals in nursing, social work and occupational therapy. Though end of life care is offered, services provided by Our House have expanded to continue to meet the ever-changing needs of people living longer with HIV/AIDS.
- Neighborhood Housing and Care Program (NHCP) provides housing and in-home services including nursing, social work and occupational therapy to people living with HIV/AIDS and supports independent living in a safe, stable and healthy environment. NHCP assists clients with an array of services, including medication and symptom management, self care, counseling and referrals to community resources. This program provides the least intensive services.
- Esther's Pantry provides supplemental food and personal care items to low-income people living with HIV/AIDS. Clients may visit the pantry to select the food they want from well-stocked shelves, rather than receiving a pre-packaged box of food.
- Tod's Corner provides clothing and household goods to people living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, basic veterinary care for companion pets, medical equipment, cremations and other case-by-case needs are provided.
