MEDFORD, Ore. – Hope Village opened its doors 65 days ago and since then they have had multiple success stories.
Hope Village is open to any homeless individuals that live in Jackson County. To enter into the program they must fill out an application and go through an interview.
Once they are accepted they will then be placed with a case worker and begin working through a level system to ultimately gain their independence and become functioning members in society.
Residents are required to do daily chores, pay for laundry, pass weekly room inspections, and work towards independence.
One man has already moved out of the program after going through the levels, finding a job and a house to live in. Others in the program are on their way to accomplishing the same goal.
The village is a program that is a part of Rogue Retreat, an organization that offers a multitude of resources for those in need within the Rogue Valley.
