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.
