MEDFORD, Ore. – The coronavirus pandemic has caused many people to become emotionally unstable. The mental toll of the times is not limited to adults. Hearts With A Mission in Medford is helping the youth at their transitional living facility cope with the new difficulties that at home learning brings.
Bill Hague, Hearts With A Mission Services Coordinator, says the aim for the organization is to house and counsel troubled youth and help them step into prosperous lives. Two living facilities adjacent from each other, one for 10-17 year-olds the other for 18-22 year-olds, have become homes to young people where they can gain skills to help them when new challenges arise.
Sabrina, a student, says she had trouble with Zoom class because she typically counts on the support of having a teacher physically present. Since being at Hearts With A Mission, the counselors there have given her different techniques she can utilize to further her educational experience.
Bill wants other homeless youth in crisis to know that Hearts With A Mission is a safe a place for them to come and receive the emotional help they may need. With a quick coronavirus screening, Hearts With A Mission looks forward to welcoming all young people in need.
