The popular and legendary signer Bon Jovi is helping the homeless veterans by building 77 new homes in Washington,D.C. His foundation, Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation has been working on this project for 10 years now.
He announced his donation during an interview on CNN : “Oftentimes, they’re (Veterans) left to deal with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and the issue of coming back to the workplace after leaving the battlefield. Life as you knew it is going be different and sometimes, people need that extra help.” said Bon Jovi.
The facility for homeless veterans is called the Walter Reed Facility can house up to 300 vets and for those making less than the median income will only pay rent equivalent to 30% of their income.
The amenities are great in the facility, they include a courtyard, a gym, a computer room, a lounge, a meeting room and programs aimed to help the veterans.
Below are a few pictures of the facility and the inside of the units :

What do you think of these units? We applaud Bon Jovi for his contribution to help reduce the homelessness among veterans. This is not the only project of the popular singer as he already worked on another project called the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Homes that helps provide a home for people with low-income and teens exiting in the foster care system in Philadelphia.
