Veterans unable to safely live independently due to functional, cognitive, or psychosocial impairment who prefer a non-institutional setting are being matched with medical foster families in northwest Arkansas for a negotiated fee. 

In anticipation of the 9th annual Run for Veterans Race, 7Hills Homeless Shelter CEO Jessica Andrews speaks with Pete Hartman in the Nancy Blair Operations Studio. 

The four-mile run started in 2009 as a way to commemorate veterans and service members on Independence Day. Since 2010 the proceeds of the race have gone to 7Hills, which provides services to veterans and low-income veteran families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
