Foster a Veteran For $3,000 Per Month

My first reaction to this story from the Tennessean was, “WEIRD” but that may have been a reaction to calling it “foster care.” Now I think it’s great (in case the Murfreesboro VA was looking for my approval). The program is designed for veterans who aren’t a great match for a nursing home and are at-risk for homelessness. Caregivers can take care of up to three veterans at once, depending on the level of their needs and the caregiver’s ability to meet them. The getting paid bit might squick you out, but caregivers provide meals, living space, and around-the-clock care.
