The Dinner Series is a great way to meet new people, enjoy incredible cuisine and support the important work of Our House.
All proceeds from public and private dinners go directly to Our House to support people in our community living with HIV/AIDS.
The Chef's Table series is the brainchild of Kurt Beadell, past Dinner Series Honorary Chair and co-owner of Vibrant Table Catering & Events and Food In Bloom, and Dianne Hosford, past Dinner Series Chair and Programs Director at Oregon Brand Management and Certified Specialist of Wine. Here, they present some of our city's top chefs! There will be four dinners offered, featuring multiple-course meal with wine pairings.
Teens Table aims to celebrate Our House's 25th anniversary of "honoring what's come before while looking forward to the next 25 years." These are opportunities for at-risk youth ages 13-19 and/or students interested in exploring careers in the health field to learn more about HIV; attend a dinner series event for free, courtesy of our sponsors; and engage in some type of hands-on activity (i.e. making holiday cards, ice cream, or cupcakes). Meals are provided at all Teens Tables.
When we say "A Texas Style BBQ, a Picture Perfect Pizza, a Harvest Dinner at the Ecovillage, or an evening of cupcake making and Bunco playing," what do you think? If it's in the Dinner Series, then we must be talking about Lite Bites. Lite Bites is our answer to those people who have requested events with a twist! These events will fill up your minds and stomachs while being lite on your pocketbook.
This year we are introducing dinner series events geared toward Portland's "Young Professionals."Young Professionals events are geared towards those who have voiced a desire to support Our House in a manner that best represents who they are and the way that they give. These events will include – but are not limited to – cocktail parties, soirees, and mixers.
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. The Our House team of expert clinicians works with people with advanced HIV/AIDS who are having difficulty managing independent living. Our programs and services include:
Our House is a specialized residential care facility that provides services for people with HIV/AIDS. Residents work with skilled professionals in nursing, social work, and occupational therapy.
Located in Milwaukie, Oregon, Esther's Pantry is a food bank that serves over 200 clients per month. The bank also provides personal care items for its clients. It is named in memory of Chester "Esther" Brinker, one of the first people in Portland to die of complications from AIDS.
The Neighborhood Housing & Care Program (NHCP) provides housing and in-home services including nursing, social work, and occupational therapy to people living with HIV/AIDS. The program encourages independent living in a safe, stable, and healthy environment.
Tod's Corner provides clothing and household goods to people living with HIV/AIDS. It is named in memory of Tod Hutchins, whose clothing "estate" began the Corner.
