2016 Annual Report

Welcome to Our House

Thank you for supporting Our House this past year. As you look through this Annual Report you’ll get a glimpse of the donors, volunteers, clients, and staff that make Our House an amazing place. Thank you to each and every one of you!


From the Executive Director

In September, I was asked to fill the position of Interim Executive Director at Our House. It is truly an honor to step into this role once again (I was Executive Director from Oct. 1999 – Jan. 2005). Since that time, Our House has changed quite a lot. The budget has tripled; we have gone from serving 34 residents and clients to over 700 people living with HIV; and we have expanded our programs to include the Neighborhood Housing & Care Program, Esther’s Pantry and Tod’s Corner.

Throughout this period of growth and change, I’ve noticed a couple things that have remained constant – the vibrant spirit of this community and the immense passion for our mission. The staff, board, volunteers, and donors have worked to create an organization that operates not only with tremendous skill and expertise, but also with vitality and integrity that is simply infectious.

I hope that by the time that you read this, Our House will be well on our way to finding a new Executive Director, a leader with vision for our future. Each year we face new challenges with HIV and we continue to be innovative and nimble while building upon our expertise, knowledge, and teamwork – the cornerstones of our work. As the landscape of this disease continues to change, we will be thoughtful, good listeners and work to provide the services necessary to help inspire people with HIV to live well.

I appreciate your support over the past year and hope you will join us as we move forward to creating the next chapter of Our House.

Executive Director

Resident Profile - Darrell

I’m truly grateful to be at Our House, as it’s helped me turn my life around and regain my health. When I came to Our House, my entire outlook changed. I was instantly getting all this support, with people asking me what I needed and even what I wanted. That was a big change! Everybody that works here cares. Really, truly cares about all of us.

Like most people, my life has been full of some incredibly happy times that I remember fondly, as well as some unbelievably awful lows. I was diagnosed with AIDS in 1984, five months after I completed treatment for drugs and alcohol. At the time I was suicidal and I really did not want to live the way I was living. I was clean and sober but miserable; I was desperate. So I went to an AA meeting and that was a beginning of a whole new life. The life expectancy for someone diagnosed with AIDS in those days was 60 to 90 days. Over 30 years later, here I am.

Before I came to Our House I was in a facility that I’ll just call a hell-hole. While I was there I became really, really depressed. I was almost non-functional: I was not taking care of myself, I stopped seeing some of my care providers, and I just didn’t care anymore. I wasn’t taking care of myself at all. But I had to stay there because it took me over a year to be approved for Our House, then I was on the waiting list until a room opened up.

“I consider myself really fortunate to be at Our House. We’re a family here, and we all cover each other’s backs.”

Luckily I was able to access in home services from the Neighborhood Housing & Care Program. When I became an NHCP client, things started to look up. My occupational therapist was able to put grab-bars in my bathroom, which made my life a whole lot easier. Along with my social worker and nursing services, they worked together to make things much better. They have expertise and understanding that made my life a whole lot easier.

Now that I a resident at Our House, I’m much more energetic than I was because I’m a lot more active. I'm doing physical therapy twice a week, and aqua therapy at the pool. I’m also teaching a vocal ease class here at Our House, and I love doing that because it allows me to give something back to this wonderful place that has given me life.

October 2016

Darrell is a native Oregonian, born in Klamath Falls Oregon. He was “out” at the tender age of 16 when he and his teenage partner announced their love for each other. As a result, his father threw him out of his childhood home and Darrell had to grow up quickly and learn to fend for himself. Through the years he lived in NYC, San Francisco and many places in-between. He enjoyed a rewarding career working with horses and riding professionally. His AIDS diagnosis brought him to a group called “Strength for The Journey” which aims to empower, encourage, uplift and affirm persons who have experienced too much of the negatives in life: stigma, shame and guilt. Though he made some wrong turns, he’d tell you he’s had a good life. He’s grateful to be reunited with his son Jeff and be on a path to better health and striving for happiness.

Esther’s Pantry

Esther’s Pantry provides supplemental food and personal care items to people living with HIV. A vital community program, Esther’s Pantry has served thousands of people over its 29-year history. Much of the food we receive at Esther’s Pantry comes from local grocery stores and community food drives. Donations received through our drop sites go directly to individuals and families in our community who are living with HIV.

Neighborhood Housing & Care Program (NHCP)

NHCP provides housing and in-home services including nursing, social work and occupational therapy to people living with HIV. Created by the Our House team, this program supports and encourages independent living in a safe, stable and healthy environment.

Our House

Since 1988, Our House has provided residential care services for people with HIV. Often residents regain their health and become independent enough to be discharged. Residents work with skilled professionals in nursing, social work and occupational therapy. Although we do provide end of life care, our services have been expanded to continue to meet the ever changing needs of people living longer with HIV.

Tod’s Corner

Tod’s Corner provides clothing and household items to people living with HIV. Additional services include basic veterinary care for companion pets, medical equipment, cremations, and other case-by-case needs.
