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.
