Souls Harbor will host the fourth annual "Dinner with Soul: Boots, Burlap, Lace and Grace" on Saturday at Horton Farms in Bentonville.
Souls Harbor, a faith-based transitional living facility, offers homeless men a positive living option to help get them back on their feet. Charlene Fields, program director, said the nonprofit organization's offerings include classes for residents covering financial literacy, parenting, anger management, life skills and communication.

Residents must work or be in school full time and give eight hours of "sweat equity" per week at the facility in Rogers in exchange for rent. Fields said tasks typically include splitting wood for sale and working in the group's garden. Produce from the garden is used in the Soul's Harbor kitchen, sold at the Rogers Farmers Market and provides ingredients for the organization's "Soul Juice." Production of the green juice started this summer, and the juice will be sold at Oasis Coffee Shop on the Northwest Arkansas Community College campus in Bentonville.
"Dinner with Soul" is the group's main source of revenue, according to Fields. The evening will feature retired Army Spc. Andrew Coughlan as keynote speaker. Coughlan served as an infantryman from 2002 to 2006 and is a recipient of Combat Infantry Badge and Army Commendation Medal with Valor. The benefit will also include a barbecue dinner, dancing and a silent auction.
