Our House of Portland

Our House Logo

Our House provides healthcare, housing, occupational therapy, and other vital services to those in need living with HIV. Our House has been part of the Portland community since 1988. Our services have expanded but our commitment to people living with HIV has remained the same. HIV is a complex and challenging disease that can often be overwhelming.

We operate a Residential Care Facility for 14 residents living with HIV/AIDS. We offer our residents three meals a day, seven days a week as our nutrition is crucial to our health and well being. If you enjoy connecting with folks over food and want to end your week by serving your community, Our House has the perfect opportunity for you!

Kitchen Helpers assist with various prep work, serving & passing out meals, deep cleaning projects & organizing the kitchen. They will also be involved gathering daily menu selections from residents, providing crucial resident social interaction. Additional duties include preparing the snack tray, rolling silverware for the next meal, & any other tasks needed to keep our kitchen running smoothly and our residents happy.

Please note: This role may have changed, due to COVID, since you last filled this position.

We are looking for a number of folks to support the Kitchen Cooks Monday through Friday.

*All of these positions are for a reoccurring weekly basis, but we are happy to work with your schedule if you have specific timing needs.
