Praise should definitely be given to the founder and CEO of The Empowerment Plan, Veronika Scott for the brilliant ideas and efforts she has implemented.
Veronica aims to empower and employ homeless women through her Detroit-based non-profit. She actually invented a coat which was self-heating and water resistant, not to mention it can transform into a sleeping bag. Perfect for houseless individuals who are on the streets.
She then started her non-profit, The Empowerment Plan, realizing that employment, not just coats, needs to be focused on, and implemented. She has since hired women in the local shelters and is having them do seamstress work on a full time basis!
Check out her inspiring story and share with friends and family.
