Bon Jovi lends star power to Phila. homeless housing plan
The Associated Press
Rock star Jon Bon Jovi is teaming up with two Philadelphia homeless advocacy groups to build an environmentally friendly housing facility for 79 men and women.
The groups Project HOME and Bethesda Project are working in partnership for the first time on the project. It's going to be called St. John the Evangelist House.
Bon Jovi is helping to build affordable housing in Philadelphia, New Orleans and his home state of New Jersey through his Philadelphia Soul Foundation.
