On October 5, 2006 the Jon Bon Jovi SOUL Foundation officially opened it’s
doors. In these past four years so much has been accomplished to better the
lives of men, women and children all over this nation. Our focus has always
been on the creation of programs and partnerships targeted at breaking the
cycle of poverty and homelessness. Since opening our doors four years ago
today we have focused our funding on projects that have offered affordable
housing, job training and social services to those in need. We exist to
combat issues that force families and individuals into economic despair.
On October 19, 2009, the JBJSF partnered with Greater Camden Partnerships and other Camden organizations to fund a vacant lot stabilization program we named GreenUP. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, we cleaned and greened more than 81 lots (141,000 square feet of vacant land). The final phase of the GreenUP program had volunteers planting shrubs and more than 50 trees in the Lanning Square neighborhood.
Almost one year later, we are proud to report that there has not been a single act of vandalism or any reports of a single illicit act on one of the greened lots! The lots are being maintained regularly by the staff and volunteers at Greater Camden Partnership.
JBJSF is excited to announce several updates regarding our projects and partnership with Saint Joseph’s Carpenter Society in Camden, NJ.
