“what these individuals needed more than coats were jobs”

Veronika is doing good things for the folks in Detroit. 

Veronika Scott was a product design student in Detroit when she invented a water-resistant and self-heating coat that transforms into a sleeping bag for the homeless. After spending months at local homeless shelters, Veronika discovered that what these individuals needed more than coats were jobs, and so began The Empowerment Plan. Today, the non-profit employs homeless women, teaching them skills that empower them to take their lives back while creating a product for a community they were once a part of.
