Medford, Ore. — The organizers of Hope Village are asking for volunteer help to make the project a reality. Now that the city has voted to move forward with the transitional housing plan, the work can begin.
Rogue Retreat is looking for people with all different skill sets, who can donate their time, labor, or materials for the houses. The organization is also looking for people or companies to help with the bigger components of the project.
“We need to prepare the site, if we have someone that had the equipment to level it,and would donate that, that would be a huge thing, or gravel they could donate or things like that, we’re going to have to build a fence, so that’s another thing that could get donated,” Chad McComas said, the Executive Director of Rogue Retreat.
The village of 40 residents will be built on a piece of land near the intersection of Columbus avenue and McAndrews road.
