An anonymous group has paid down a balloon payment for 7Hills Homeless Center to keep their day center in south Fayetteville from closing. 7Hills will now pay back the group over the course of several years instead of having to make one large payment, which Lynn Carver, the president of the 7Hills board, said the center would not have been able to do.

7Hills Homeless Center staff and board are working to find a solution to a financial crisis that has put their Day Center in jeopardy. The Day Center offers the homeless in Northwest Arkansas basic needs like showers, meals and a place to send their mail.

A concert Sunday will raise funds and awareness for 7Hills in Fayetteville.  Both, organizers, say are very important to battling homelessness.
