Homeless village in GP starting construction this month

GRANTS PASS, Ore. —Some exciting news for Grants Pass, construction on the Foundry Village temporary housing shelter is set to begin January 10th.

The development and building permits are in the process of being issued from the city.

All Care Community Foundation will own the facility and Rogue Retreat will run it.

The facility acts as a stepping stone to helping individuals and families move from homeless, toward long-term housing.
