Through a partnership with ACCESS, Rogue Retreat has expanded the Kelly Shelter into a brand new 54-bed facility that opened year-round that opened on November 21st, 2019. The Kelly Shelter is now the first low barrier (housing first) shelter in Southern Oregon. The Kelly Shelter provides an opportunity for Rogue Retreat case management staff to meet daily with homeless men, and women to help them work on permanent ways to get off the streets, address their individual barriers and transition back into society. This will be accomplished through providing case management and safe and stable shelter in a small community of up to 54 person’s sheltered per night.
To apply please contact our office at 541-499-0880 for instructions on how to complete an application and be placed on the shelter waitlist.
We are in need of Meal Volunteers that can volunteer to help cook and serve warm meals to our 54 shelter guests once a month. This is an amazing way to give back to the community and truly help those that are overcoming homelessness find the hope that they need to move forward in their lives. For more information about becoming a Meal Volunteer, please contact Shannon Holland at 541-499-0880 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to space limitations, the shelter is mostly in need of toiletry items for shelter guests and cleaning supplies for the shelter. The most needed items are listed below:
• Toothpaste and Mouthwash
• Soap and Shampoo
• Lotion and sunscreen
• Disposable Razors
• Paper Towels
• Laundry Soap
Please drop off donated items at our main office located at 711 E. Main St. #25 Medford, OR 97504.
