Bon Jovi has been known to raise money for charities around the world through performances, and the band’s leader is a known philanthropist.

Jon Bon Jovi is now stepping up again and lening a hand in opening a homeless shelter in Philadelphia, PA. The shelter is specifically for displaced youths and it’s reported that he donated $3 million via his Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation (JBJSF).

Called the Covenant House Rights of Passage apartments, it will provide temporary housing for 20 homeless youths under the age of 21. Located in the Kensington section of Philadelphia, the Covenant House currently serves more than 500 young people every year through its Crisis Shelter, and will now be able to provide youth with stability as well.

According to the JBJSF website, the new housing development consists of 10 two-bedroom units, and includes outdoor recreational space, a lounge and computer lab, laundry facilities, and offices for program support staff.

“Today is a celebration of the lives of the young people who will call this home,” said Jon Bon Jovi in a press release. “It’s a victory over the issues that forced them into homelessness and economic despair. Through the funding and creation of programs and partnerships like this, we can all support innovative community efforts to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.”
