Our Team

We’re working together to make a difference.

Rogue Retreat is more than a shelter program, and our board members and staff are more than their titles. Collectively, we’re transforming the lives of those facing homelessness in Southern Oregon. Our team spans community leaders, business owners, public servants, participants, Rogue Retreat alumni, and other nonprofit directors who all share the belief that we can re-tell our region’s story of homelessness, and make a greater impact by working together.
