NOMINATION OF THE WEEK: THE EMPOWERMENT PLAN

The Empowerment Plan aims to break the generational cycle of homelessness by helping the displaced earn a stable income and regain their independence. The Detroit based nonprofit trains homeless women and gives them full-time employment as seamstresses. The women manufacture an ingenious coat designed to fold out into a sleeping bag when needed, or into a convenient carrying ‘bag’ when not in use.
