NASHVILLE (AP) — After a concert in Nashville, rocker Jon Bon Jovi spent some time with homeless teens at the Oasis Center.
The singer’s new tour has been including stops around the country to build inspiration and ideas for the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a Philadelphia-based charity that fights homelessness by building affordable housing, establishing community kitchens and cleaning up vacant lots in blighted neighborhoods.
The Tennessean reported he spent about an hour Thursday afternoon with some of the teens, doing yoga and listening to them talk about what could help them.
Bon Jovi told the newspaper that “the face of homelessness has changed dramatically.”
