Jordana Guimaraes, author of It Can Be You is the founder of The NYLON Project, which she created in 2016 as an awareness campaign to humanize homelessness. In 2018 she also co-founded Fashinnovation, along with her husband, which is a platform connecting technology, entrepreneurship and innovation to drive change in fashion.
The Nylon Project brings together the fashion and entertainment industries to give a “face” to homelessness and personalize this critical issue. Jordana partnered with 45 influencers who shared their stories of struggle and perseverance which has been contrasted to the similar journeys within different circumstances of those who are homeless today.

Susan Rockefeller and Maria Cuomo joined Jordana and the fashion industry in “Giving a Face to Homelessness” through their collaboration with the NYLON PROJECT through HELP USA.
I asked Susan Rockefeller, with so many demands on her time and the countless projects she is working on, why she chose to partner with Jordana and the Nylon Project.
“I wanted to partner with Jordana on her book It Can Be You because homelessness is a problem that effects every community. Often it takes just a few unfortunate circumstances that can lead a person or family from home to homelessness. This book opens the conversation about homelessness in a way that embraces compassion and a much needed addition to the information already out there. “- Susan Rockefeller
