Our Philosophy of Care is based upon compassionately and effectively meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents and clients using harm reduction, community, compassionate communication, and self-determination.  




Our House recognizes that people living with HIV may struggle with severe mental health and addiction problems that significantly impact their ability to qualify and receive appropriate housing and healthcare services.  Our House is committed to being tolerant and patient with people who are working through their long-term struggles with these issues. While flexibility is practiced whenever possible, staff use clinical discretion in considering involuntary move-out.  Involuntary move-out may be initiated based on the following circumstances:

  • Resident’s level of care exceeds that which can be offered at Our House

  • Resident is not physically present on site to utilize the services provided

  • Repeated, active substance use that results in behavior that substantially interferes with rights of other residents

  • Inappropriate behavior that repeatedly and/or significantly interferes with rights of other residents such that it becomes a danger to themselves or others

  • Non-payment of Room and Board with no willingness to participate in payment arrangement
