“Esther’s Pantry, a program of Our House, is an obvious choice for me when selecting worthy community not-for-profit organizations to support. Our House is clearly a mission-driven, direct service agency that puts a lot of care and thought into the manner in which they deliver health and human services. The fact that Esther’s Pantry allows clients to select their own food has always impressed me. It’s indicative of offering clients much more than food -- offering them choice and dignity. When you’re living with HIV/AIDs, there’s much that can seem out of one’s control. The ability to put food on your table that meets your cultural, dietary and family interests, not only meets some needs, but brings some relief and peace of mind. That’s great for the health and well-being of clients. That’s a holistic approach. That’s Our House.”
