Housing & Shelter Programs
Rogue Retreat provides camping, shelter, and housing programs for homeless individuals and families in Jackson and Josephine counties. From our transitional campground to independent apartment housing, we meet you where you are.
Learn more about our housing and shelter options.
Grants Pass Shelter
The Grants Pass Shelter is in a setting of semi-private rooms (2 guests per room- or a family may share). This low barrier program has 25 beds, and once admitted, the guests may stay through the funded period until June 17, 2022.
Hope Village is a “tiny house” community operated by Rogue Retreat, and a safe place for people experiencing homelessness to live while addressing their personal barriers. There is no running water in houses, but they have electricity for heat and all other amenities are on-site.
Kelly Shelter is a 64-bed facility in Medford, Oregon. This location operates year-round and is low-barrier, meaning that there are fewer requirements for becoming a participant. Shower and laundry services are available on-site, and each shift is hosted by trained employees.
Foundry Village is a transitional housing community that provides safe, secure shelter and case management services. Participants must be 18 years of age or older, and demonstrate a willingness to make a lifestyle change.
Rogue Retreat operates four recovery houses for women and men: Heather’s Haven, Amy’s Haven, Cindy’s Haven and Harold’s Haven. Preference is given to people coming directly out of inpatient treatment, or referred by one of our treatment partners.
This location is home to 53 two-bedroom trailers, and priority is provided to families with students within the Phoenix-Talent School District who lost their housing from the Almeda Fire. Participation fees are collected and used towards utilities and case management services.
These properties are owned and managed by Rogue Retreat. It is an affordable housing, second-chance renters program for those who are homeless and need a fresh start. Participants are responsible for paying full rent and utilities.
Housing Retreat is a rent subsidized program for people who are currently and chronically homeless. Participants pay 30% of their adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. Properties are owned by the Housing Authority of Jackson County and co-managed by Rogue Retreat.
Urban Campground, Medford
The Urban Campground, Medford is an entry-level tent and Pallet Shelter safe haven with 90 sites. Guests receive twice-daily donated meals, as well as wrap-around supportive services. Participants must be referred by the Medford City Police Department Livability Team.
Ashland Shelter has room for 49 people every night with 10 pallet shelters and 39 beds in an existing structure. Participants must be referred by local law enforcement or by a community partner, like Options for Helping Residents of Ashland (OHRA).
“It’s a slow process, but I’m still moving. I don’t know where God is taking me, but he’s using the people at Rogue Retreat to show me the world is better and there’s a future after what’s happened to me. I may never have closure, but now I have a way out.”
– Karen, Hope Village Resident

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I choose my housing or shelter location?
Yes, you can decide which housing and shelter sites to apply for, and each site has a waitlist and criteria that affect who is eligible and how quickly someone can move in.
How long does it take to get housing?
Each of our sites has a waitlist and operational capacity. The amount of time it takes to get into any of our housing and shelter sites can vary greatly. Often, our low-barrier sites have shorter wait times than our tiny houses or apartments.
