Housing & Shelter
We provide creative housing programs & wrap-around services.
Each night, Rogue Retreat has the capacity to serve 500+ people in Jackson and Josephine counties. But we do not warehouse people — we inspire hope by wrapping around participants with supportive services once they are stabilized with shelter. These services help them move out of the “well of homelessness” and into lives filled with meaning and purpose.
Along with our many community partners, we’re helping people restore their lives.
Urban Campground, Medford
Medford, OR | Opened in 2020 | Capacity 125
The Urban Campground, Medford is a partnership between Rogue Retreat and City of Medford, and serves homeless individuals and couples with innovative Pallet Shelters, Rigid Tents, and organized tent sites. This is a low-barrier shelter site, meaning that there are no sobriety requirements for participants to receive services. However, those sheltered at the campground are restricted from using drugs or alcohol on-site. Additionally, those who enter the Urban Campground, Medford with pets are allowed to keep their pets.
The Urban Campground, Medford consists of two phases. In Phase 1, participants are provided tent sites and meals. The focus here is stabilizing people and helping them with a safe place. Once a participant is ready, they move on to Phase 2 with access to Pallet Shelters, Rigid Tents, and case management services.
Participants at this location are referred by The Medford Police Department Livability Team. Various community partners visit the Urban Campground, Medford on a regular basis to provide wrap-around supportive services on-site such as alcohol and drug counseling, mental health services, housing services, job readiness, and legal aid.
Kelly Shelter at the Navigation Center
Medford, OR | Opened in 2019 | Capacity 100
Created through House Bill 2006, The Navigation Center will be a center for houseless wrap-around resources in the Rogue Valley. The Kelly Shelter moved to the Navigation Center in the Summer of 2022 and expanded to 100 beds. There are showers, laundry, addiction, and counseling services available on site. The center will act as a hub for resources and will eliminate shelter guests from having to travel to multiple sites to receive services. The Navigation Center will not be a drop-in location. The navigation services will be for shelter guests to help them stabilize and move forward as quickly as possible. Once participants move forward their bed will be filled by the next guest on the Kelly Shelter application waitlist.
Medford, OR | Opened in 2017 | Capacity 38
Hope Village is the first of its kind in Southern Oregon. This attractive, well-designed site offers a community setting with insulated tiny house duplex units (8×10), each with access to electricity and a locking door to ensure privacy. Shared facilities include a kitchen trailer, restroom and shower trailer, laundry room, community center, park area, dog park, and a vegetable garden.
The village is safe, sanitary, gated, and supervised by on-site staff. Daily chores and weekly house inspections teach participants how to care for their tiny homes, therefore building their capacity to become self-sustaining future tenants and neighbors in the communities where they will eventually live.
Participants are required to pay a monthly program fee (half of which goes into a personal savings account for each participant when they leave Hope Village) and work with Rogue Retreat’s supportive services staff and community partners to address their individual barriers.
The Redwood Inn
Medford, OR | Opened in 2021 | Capacity 47
Rogue Retreat and the City of Medford were selected to receive a Project Turnkey grant in the amount of $2.55 million to purchase and transform a 47-room motel in Medford, Oregon. The Redwood Inn is currently being renovated 14 rooms at a time and has apartments with kitchenettes, bathrooms, living, and sleeping quarters. Forty-three apartments are dedicated to housing those displaced by the Almeda Fire, and four studio apartments are available for those who need skilled nursing care or who are recovering from COVID-19.
Once all residents displaced by the fires find permanent housing, The Redwood Inn will operate as transitional housing for Rogue Retreat program participants who are moving toward sustainable housing of their own.
Rogue Retreat Apartments
Medford, OR | Capacity 88
In partnership with the Housing Authority of Jackson County, Rogue Retreat operates 23 subsidized one and two-bedroom apartments in Medford and Central Point, Oregon. Additionally, Rogue Retreat owns 21 unsubsidized affordable housing apartments in Medford. Apartment residents are required to meet with supportive services staff regularly.
Heart Village (in development)
Medford, OR | Opening 2022 | Capacity 12
Heart Village is projected to be a joint transitional housing partnership between Addictions Recovery Center, Inc. (ARC) and Rogue Retreat. This initiative will establish a fenced and gated tiny-house community with shared facilities that are attractive, relaxing, and peaceful. All village buildings are designed to be mobile if needed (with trailering).
Heart Village will consist of 12 tiny homes and give those struggling with homelessness and addiction quicker access to treatment services.
