Medford Homeless Student Number Remains High
The latest survey results on homeless students in Oregon produced some relief, but not much. While there are fewer students reporting being homeless than in previous years, it's still a high number: nearly 22,000.
And worse for Southern Oregon, Medford is right up near the top, with more homeless students than the city of Portland. Homelessness is just one of the issues targeted by the Rogue Action Center, and the prime concern of the Maslow Project. Michelle Glass from RAC and Fallon Stewart from Maslow talk about the problem and the approach to correcting it.
