Rogue Retreat


Non-profit Organization

About Us

Originally started in 1998, in 2006 Rogue Retreat revised its mission to primarily address the growing homeless epidemic in Southern Oregon through providing housing and relationship-based case management that helps participants overcome the barriers that keep them from obtaining housing and becoming self-sufficient.
The State of Oregon granted Rogue Retreat two large grants in 2009 that provided 19 apartments and case management funding thus making Rogue Retreat a Permanent Supportive Housing Program for the homeless. Since 2010, Rogue Retreat has expanded to overseeing 44 apartments, women’s and men’s recovery homes, the Kelly Shelter (the first year-round “low barrier” shelter in Southern Oregon), Hope Village (the first tiny house village in Southern Oregon) in Medford, Urban Campground (the first urban campground in Southern Oregon), three social enterprises (i.e., Clean Sweep, Hope University, Thrift Shop), and has plans to operate the Foundry Village and a shelter in Grants Pass.
