Some of the people in this city feeling like they're living on a prayer were given anything but bad medicine when Jon Bon Jovi showed up yesterday.

In town to chair a board meeting with members of his nonprofit, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, the hunky rocker paid a surprise visit to Project HOME's Hub of Hope - a drop-in homeless center in SEPTA's Suburban Station.



In what was billed as the Romero Day of Commitment, business and civic leaders joined Archbishop Charles Chaput on Monday, March 23 to see homelessness and the face of hunger close up.

David Brown

From the Philadelphia Inquirer

His first night outside was on a bench in Logan Square. He remembers the cold of that long-ago night. He remembers feeling scared.
