BENEFITING: The Empowerment Plan

THE STORY:

Donate now and your gift will have double the impact. We're thrilled to announce that Diane Von Furstenberg will be matching all donations dollar for dollar up to $50,000! Through your gift and DVF’s generosity, the $100,000 raised will help us reach our goal of hiring 2 additional seamstresses, permanently breaking the cycle of homelessness for themselves and their families.

The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation is committed to positively impacting the world by improving people’s lives and strengthening communities. The DVF Awards created by Diane and the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation honor and support extraordinary women who have had the courage to fight, the power to survive and the leadership to inspire. Veronika and The Empowerment Plan were awarded the People's Voice Award in 2014 and have continued to work with the DVF family ever since. 


The Empowerment Plan is a Detroit based nonprofit organization focused on permanently elevating individuals from the generational cycle of homelessness. We hire single mothers from local shelters and train them to become 
full time seamstresses so that they can earn a stable income, find secure housing, and gain back their independence for themselves and their families. The individuals we hire manufacture a durable coat that can transform into 
a sleeping bag at night or an over-the- shoulder bag when not in use. Since 2012, we have provided employment to 34 homeless individuals and distributed over 15,000 coats to those in need across the U.S. and Canada.
