The teen years are always tough. Homelessness, family crisis and other social ills can make those years even more challenging.

Hearts With A Mission has been providing faith-based family services for a number of years in Jackson and Josephine Counties. The organization is nearing completion of a new youth shelter to give teens in crisis a safe place to go.

The organization visited us three years ago. Will Young, Coordinator of Hearts With A Mission's Medford shelter, joins us with an update on the new facility.
