This will be the second year of events that we gear towards young professionals which we are calling Portland’s “Generation Next”. We strive to add different groups of individuals who – through the very nature of their demographic – will help us continue to grow just as our knowledge of HIV/AIDS has grown.

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. 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.

Each year both Tod’s Corner and Esther’s Pantry help service more than 650 clients with clothing, household goods, and food.
