On Thursday night, Jon Bon Jovi was interviewed on Larry King Live. Among the topics of discussion were the JBJSF and our projects, including the JBJ Soul Kitchen.
This past February, Jon Bon Jovi had taken a break from rehearsals in Seattle to visit the staff and residents of 1811 Eastlake – a facility of the DESC (Downtown Emergency Service Center). This visit was one of several that Jon made to different organizations while on the first half of The Circle Tour.
On Monday, November 15th Jon Bon Jovi visited two of the Soul Foundation’s community partners, the Hopeworks ‘N Camden C.R.I.B. in Camden, NJ and the Connelly House in Center City Philadelphia.
Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation has teamed up with the trainees and staff at Hopeworks ‘N Camden to create a video highlighting the work we have done since the start of the Foundation in 2006. We chose Hopeworks ‘N Camden as our partner to provide their students an opportunity to further their experiences in computer and editing skills. Click here to watch the video now.
Our work is very important to us and here at the JBJSF we recognize the great challenges in taking on such a global issue as homelessness and more specifically, the right to safe and affordable housing for all. With guidance from our mentors and with the resources of our community partners we have made great strides and housed hundreds of individuals and families that have either experienced or been on the threshold of homelessness.
