Hope Village groundbreaking

Medford, Ore., — A tiny house village for the homeless broke ground today in Medford.

It’s a big step for Hope Village, but there’s still a lot of work to do.

The ground has to be leveled, paved and fenced before building can even begin.

Right now organizers say they have enough money to sustain the village for at least a year.

“Medford hasn’t had a plan for homelessness, and now we’re starting, this is the first one. So it’s a ground breaking idea and it’s a ground breaking in reality.” said Sheri Beale, a member of the steering committee.

The 14 tiny houses are arriving in kits to be put together on the lot.

The tentative date for the start of construction is January 21st.
