Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation
The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundationâs Mission is to combat issues that force families and individuals into economic despair. We believe that through the formation of strategic partnerships and the funding of innovative programming, we can break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. It is about harnessing âThe Power of WEâ. To end homelessness now and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, we firmly support housing now and education for the future. Our funding priorities have focused on providing stabilized housing opportunities with supportive services to families. The supportive services offered by our partner organizations include job training, educational opportunities, and health and medical support including nutritional family food programs. In just the few years since our inception and with the active involvement of our Board of Directors, including Jon Bon Jovi, the JBJ Soul Foundation has provided funding for over 265 units of housing around the country (Brooklyn, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles, Newark and Camden, NJ) and most recently funded a community kitchen to provide nutritious eating alternatives to a low-income population. We currently have ongoing projects with some local organizations: Project H.O.M.E., Covenant House PA, Hopeworks, Heart of Camden and Saint Joseph Carpenter Society. The many families and children benefitting from these programs receive the guidance to dream of a future with opportunities and to be part of the equation of developing long-lasting solutions to rebuilding pride in oneâs self and oneâs community â¦one SOUL at a time.
