Housing complex named after Jon Bon Jovi

A housing complex in Pennsylvania now bears rocker Jon Bon Jovi's initials, after his foundation helped fund the development for less fortunate families.

The Livin' on a Prayer hitmaker's Bon Jovi's Soul Foundation has been helping the homeless since 2006, and their latest project also serves as a tribute to the rocker and his charitable efforts.


Bon Jovi's organization handed over $16.6 million towards the complex in Philadelphia, a 55-unit development which will be occupied by low-income tenants.


The frontman was on hand for the grand opening of the four-story building on Tuesday (21Apr14), which is called JBJ Soul Homes.
