Jon Bon Jovi - Bon Jovi Opens Homeless Shelter

Celebrity philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi was on hand to boost the spirits of displaced youths on Tuesday (19Apr11) when he helped to open a homeless shelter in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The rocker is a longtime supporter of homeless charities and he donated money to fund the $3 million (£1.88 million) facility via his Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation .
He joined Covenant House International president Kevin Ryan to launch the new accommodation, which will house 20 youngsters between the ages of 18 and 21, explaining that failing to support troubled youths "denies all of us their talents and visions".
