If you have retail experience or a keen eye for detail and organizational flow, you will be enthusiastic to get your hands in the mix!

Join us at Esther's Pantry. Our pantry provides over 10,000 pounds of food to the community weekly! We will unload and stock food, sort donations and ensure shelves and racks are stocked with healthy foods.

Shifts are Monday from 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm, Tuesday from 1:00 - 5:30 pm and Thursday from 1:00 - 5:30 pm. We also offer Open Pantry Days for any and all individuals/ families facing food insecurity. Open Pantry Days are the 2nd and last Wednesdays of every month. Shifts on Open Pantry Days are 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

Esther's Pantry is a program of Our House. Our House provides integrated health and housing services to people with HIV/AIDS. Guided by compassion, collaboration, and respect, we provide 24-hour specialized care, supportive services, and independent housing with support services. Volunteers engaging in this opportunity are directly serving our mission by ensuring all donations are managed, stocked and shared with our clients when they arrive to Esther's Pantry. These spaces are primarily staffed via volunteers. Volunteers may engage in client companionship, supporting our clients throughout their time in Esther's Pantry to find, access and take home foods that will support their nutrition and overall health and well being.

In furtherance of our efforts to protect the health and safety of our clients, residents, staff and volunteers and in accordance with public health guidance Our House of Portland is requiring all volunteers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by October 15, 2021. According to the CDC, people are considered to be fully vaccinated:

  • Two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, e.g., the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or

Two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, e.g., Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine

Proof of vaccination record will be required prior to first volunteer shift.

Mission Statement

Our House provides integrated health and housing services to people with HIV/AIDS. Guided by compassion, collaboration and respect, we provide 24-hour specialized care and independent housing with supportive services.


HIV/AIDS is a complex and challenging disease that can often be overwhelming. The Our House team works with people with advanced HIV/AIDS who are having difficulty managing independent living. We tailor services for each individual that defines what "living well" means to them.

Consistent with our vision and core values, our Philosophy of Care is based upon compassionately and effectively meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents and clients.
