MEDFORD, Ore. — “Hearts with a Mission” is getting ready to open its new Transitional Living Program in the non-profit’s former youth shelter.
The program will support young adults ages 18 to 22 who need help getting on their feet.
Program Director, April Waggoner, says they already have a waitlist for the only 6 beds available.
“We’re really also teaching them life skills while they’re living there for two years on budgeting, money management, finding jobs, [and] employment education,” said April Waggoner, program director for the non-profit’s Transitional Living Program.
Waggoner says they’re still in need of home decor and hygiene supplies before opening this March.
