Phoenix-based nonprofit gives hope to homeless

PHOENIX - A Phoenix-based, nonprofit bath and beauty products company is run almost entirely by people who used to be homeless.

Just B - B Just produces a line of soaps, shower gels, lip balms and candles.

The company is operated by Lodestar Day Resource Center and is one of 16 agencies housed on the 11-acre Human Services Campus in Phoenix, which aids the Phoenix metropolitan area's homeless community.

Officials tell The Arizona Republic that Just B - B Just seeks to end the cycle of poverty and homelessness by employing homeless individuals and then training them in business, social and life skills.

They also hope that getting Just B - B Just products in retail outlets will spur growth for the company.
