About Southern Oregon
Southern Oregon is a region of the U.S. State of Oregon south of Lane County and generally west of the Cascade Range. Counties include Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, and Josephine. As of 2015, the population in the four counties was about 471,000, and in the greater, seven-county definition is about 564,000. Medford is a City in, and the county seat of, Jackson County. As of 2017, the city had a total population of 81,780 and a metropolitan area population of 217,479, making the Medford MSA the fourth largest metro area in Oregon. The city is also home to Helping Hands International headquarters! Each year we complete an outreach project in our own community because we recognize that there are hurting people here that need the help and hope of Jesus too! For more than 15 years we have been committed to give backing to this community and, over the last two years, we have focused on building projects for women shelters and youth ministry facilities. In 2020, we are planning to build an outdoor activities area, adjacent to a local Salvation Army facility, equipped with an amphitheater, outdoor eating space and possibly a volleyball court. We are pleased to have Tim Plankenhorn, Helping Hands International Program Director, leading this year’s service project and invite you to join us for all or part of the trip (see registration information below)!
