  • The mission of the Maslow Project in Medford: To increase the coping skills of, and self-sufficiency in, young people who are homeless — to give them a decent chance in the adult world.
  • Founder and Executive Director Mary Ferrell was born and raised in Medford.
  • Lacey Renae is the group's counselor and art therapist. Most art supplies are donated by the local community.

The community also collects clothing for Jessica's Closet, a free shop for young people that is run by volunteers. During the 2011-2012 school year, 1,400 clients visited the Project.

David Gibb is a photographer in Jacksonville, Ore., and listens to Jefferson Public Radio.
