MY Salute to America

"ISN'T IT HORRIBLE?  Isn't it shameful?"

"Why doesn't somebody DO something?"
"They don't belong here."

"What about the children?"

"A staggering 2.5 million children are now homeless each year in America. This historic high represents one in every 30 children in the United States." * 

"Without showers, toilets or electricity."

"It's become a humanitarian crisis."


"What should we do with them?"

Some use bulldozers, others tanks.

There are affordable, dignified solutions.

Hope Village, Medford OR

Here's how you can help a worthy cause: the 501c3 transitional tiny-house community for the chronically homeless created here in southern Oregon, Hope Village

A GoFundMe page has been established to aid in the expansion recently approved by our City Council.  If you prefer you may mail a check directly to Rogue Retreat Hope Village, 711 E. Main St. #25, Medford, OR  97504. Here's a link to the Hope Village website.

For more about the Village here's a link to a recently completed video by a group in California on our tiny home community. These communities are popping up all around the country in response to our common problem of affordable housing. Thank you for helping.
