"To give them more of a home environment, without the institution, without the institution food, a place where they can have their own pet," Teresa Maib, Coorindator for the local Medical Foster Care Program said.
Maib has been working to put veterans into medical foster homes since September of 2012, and she hopes to have five veterans placed by this fall.
But the process in lenghty, including paperwork, medical releases, and interviews.
The veterans wants are always the main concern however,
Right now Maib says they really need volunteers to get the program started, and they look for people with some kind of adult care experience.
