Rogue Retreat fundraising for ‘Hope Village’ expansion

MEDFORD, Ore. – Rogue Retreat is raising money to expand Hope Village in Medford.

Prior to the global pandemic, Rogue Retreat received permission from the City of Medford to add 4 new tiny homes. Currently, there are 30 tiny homes!

Rogue Retreat have already raised about $10,000, but need $40,000 more.

“During this covid 19 crisis hope village is actually set up to be quite favorable to help people shelter in place because they basically have their own detachable bedrooms they could go to and it helps social distancing,” said Matthew Vorderstrasse, Development Director of Rogue Retreat.

Rogue Retreat says once they raise enough money, there’ll be a quick turnaround to get the homes built.
