Phoenix DJ houses homeless mother and daughter

Ramses Ja has a non-profit called Lunch Bags that hands out food to the homeless in Phoenix.

At the last outing, he noticed a little girl digging through the trash and approached her. He found out that the 5-year-old and her mom are homeless. They can't stay in a shelter because kids aren't allowed.

Ramses, a disk jockey at 101.1 The Beat, felt so compelled to help that he gave them all the money he had in his wallet. It was about $25 and he didn't feel like that was enough.

He asked the mom to give him 48 hours to help -- and help he did.

Check out his video to find out what happened next.

About the Author


Pamela left Pittsburgh, PA in 1996 to study Broadcast Journalism at Arizona State University and has never looked back. Since then, her radio career has taken her to Wisconsin; she has been a public speaker for Monster.com and has taught a few semesters at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU. Currently, she is pulling double duty on the Bruce St. Jame's Show. She spends half the show providing a woman's perspective on the top talk topics of the day and the other half of the show delivering informative, relatable newscasts to our KTAR listeners.

Once the show is over, Pamela gets out of the studio and gets into the newsroom where she is also the Managing Editor of the KTAR News Department.

When she isn't behind a microphone or chasing the big story of the day, you'll find Pamela at home with her husband Kris, daughter Riley and her crazy Chocolate Lab named Chewie. Her professional and personal life keep her quite busy but when she manages to find a few free moments she likes to spend them in her garden, working out, trying new recipes and discovering new restaurants.
