Did You Know?
Roughly one out of every 10 students in Jackson County meets the Federal definition of homeless. In fact, Oregon has the highest percentage of homeless children in the nation, with Medford having the 3rd highest percentage in the state.
You might be surprised to find out who these youth are:
- Most are homeless along with their entire family
- Approximately 250 of Maslow Project’s young clients are aged five or under
- The average age of the youth we work with is 11 years old
- Approximately 130 youth ages 16-21 are without a parent or guardian
Maslow Project’s mission is to find these kids, ensure their basic survival needs are met (food, clothing, safety), and support them as they work toward reaching higher-level goals. We focus on “the big picture”– making sure kids can get to, and stay in school–learning valuable life skills, becoming employable, and ultimately, finishing their education.
