Jon Bon Jovi Fighting Veteran’s Homelessness

This same foundation runs The Soul Kitchen restaurant in Red Bank, N.J., where you pay if you have the means, otherwise you can work off your meal there.
Now, Jon’s putting his efforts into helping veterans.
Aol.com reports that Jon Bon Jovi has ” joined forces with the Department of Veterans Affairs in challenging software developers to create mobile apps that can help homeless vets connect with services they need in real time and nearby.
It’s called Project REACH (Real-time Electronic Access for Caregivers and the Homeless), and it is challenging the developer community to create easy, mobile access to resources the homeless need, when they need it and where they can get it.
“The concept is that we can access vets to instant and real time help via the internet. What better way to do that than through the minds of the tech community?,” said Bon Jovi in a conference call with reporters.”
