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

Medford, OR | Opened in 2019 | Capacity 64

In partnership with ACCESS, Rogue Retreat opened a year-round, low-barrier shelter in 2019 —​ the first of its kind in Southern Oregon. Those staying at the shelter work with Rogue Retreat’s supportive services staff to address each participant’s individual barriers to housing, so they may begin transitioning back into the community. Two meals are provided each day to Kelly Shelter participants by partner organizations and volunteers, and shower and laundry services are available for participants on-site.

Hope Village

Medford, OR | Opened in 2017 | Capacity 34

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 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.

A joint effort between the Talent Urban Renewal Agency and the Phoenix-Talent School District, the Talent Gateway Transitional Housing Project was made possible by a $1.7 million donation from the State of Oregon, as well as a separate donation from Medford-based People’s Bank.

The two groups brought 53 RVs to the site to house families displaced due to the Almeda Fire, which ravaged Southern Oregon in September 2020. Priority at this site is given to families in the Phoenix-Talent school district, so that they may return to and stay within their schools. Rogue Retreat is managing the site and provides participants with supportive services as needed.
