Veronika Scott: The Empowerment Plan

December 2, 2013 @ 6:00 am - 7:30 pm

The Empow­er­ment Plan aims to help build a bet­ter life for those that have become trapped in the cycle of homelessness. We give home­less women jobs while in the shel­ter so that they can earn money, find a place to live, and gain back their inde­pen­dence for them­selves and for their families. 

We are a human­i­tar­ian orga­ni­za­tion based in the city of Detroit. The plan cen­ters around con­struc­tion of a coat that trans­forms into a sleep­ing bag at night, and a bag when not in use. The coat is made by a group of home­less women who have been paid to learn and to pro­duce the coats for those liv­ing on the streets.

The focus is to cre­ate jobs for those who desire them, and to pro­vide coats at no cost for those who need them.

RSVP Com­ing Soon
