Dec 9, 2016

It took a while, but Medford is ready to break ground on a tiny-house village to house homeless people while they get back on their feet. 

Opportunity Village in Eugene provided a template for the Medford project.

Hope Village will be located on Columbus Avenue in Medford, on a city-owned piece of property. 

Rogue Retreat and the Jackson County Homeless Task Force are working together on the village. 

Chad McComas of Rogue Retreat joins us to talk about the workings of this and other tiny-house villages for the homeless.  Brandon, a frequently homeless man, shares his story of trying to get back into permanent housing.
