The Empowerment Plan - Part II

Our founder and CEO, Veronika Scott, was inspired to start The Empowerment Plan. The Empowerment Plan is a Detroit based nonprofit organization focused on permanently elevating families from the generational cycle of homelessness. We hire single parents from local shelters and provide them with training and full-time employment as seamstresses so that they can earn a stable income, find secure housing, and regain their independence. The individuals we hire manufacture a coat designed to meet the needs of those in the homeless community. The durable EMPWR Coat can transform into a sleeping bag at night or an over- the-shoulder bag when not in use. Teia Williams, seamstress, tells her story of working with The Empowerment Plan.
