JBJ Soul Foundation

Rebuilding pride in one’s self and one’s community – one SOUL at a time.

Our Mission

Thank you for your interest in our Foundation!  Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty, hunger and homelessness through developing partnerships, creating programs and providing grant funding to community benefit organizations.

We invite you to join us in creating innovative and long-lasting solutions to hunger and homelessness and support our desire to provide safe and affordable housing options in communities throughout the US. We are committed to rebuilding pride in one’s self and one’s community.

Together, WE can make a difference…. One SOUL At A Time

Our Projects

The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation has helped provide support for over 600 units of affordable and supportive housing in 10 states for thousands of people including youth and veterans.  The Soul Foundation’s expanded mission helps those in need of a warm, nutritious meal and now operates two JBJ Soul Kitchens in New Jersey.

Get Involved

JBJSF continues to support advocacy efforts to increase awareness of issues surrounding housing and hunger.  Join us in our efforts by volunteering at one of our JBJ Soul Kitchen’s or making a donation to help those in need.
