Naysayers Said She’d Fail. Now She’s Helping Empower the Homeless
Veronika Scott had an idea to help the homeless population of Detroit, but it soon turned into something much greater: An entire nonprofit organization that employs the homeless, too. Her innovative idea to create a coat-and-sleeping bag-in-one is now being made possible by dedicated employees, hired and trained directly from local homeless shelters. Raised in a difficult household herself and told she’d never succeed, Veronika is now working to create better lives for everyone around her.
