Medford, Ore. — Plans for a proposed homeless village will go before the Medford city council Thursday. As the plan stands currently, 14 tiny homes would be constructed on a city-owned lot at 3rd and Front streets. The hope is to create “Hope Village”, a community where homeless men, women and couples can stay while looking for work or for permanent housing.
“A place where you can lock your things up if you want to go look for work instead of carrying your backpack or pushing a shopping cart with all of your belongings because you’re afraid they’re going to get stolen,” Heather Everett of Rogue Retreat says.
The plan for Hope Village will be presented to the council during a study session Thursday at 7PM.
