I'd been saving up to start a new project--a completely self-serving project--when I came across an article on Huffpost. And while my personal project can wait for me to save up again...those who benefit from this amazing idea can not wait.
People who have never lived in the Mid-West have no concept of the brutality and the harshness winter can unleash. If my small donation can help protect someone from that? Or can help provide a job? Dang! My project might just be on hold permanently!
Congratulations on following your heart...and tell your grandparents how amazing they are, too!!

OUR MISSION

We're a Detroit based organization focused on creating jobs for homeless women who want them, and giving coats to homeless individuals who need them.

The Empowerment Plan employs and trains homeless women to manufacture a garment that serves as both a coat and a sleeping bag. These coats are then distributed back to homeless individuals within the community at no cost to them.

Through training and steady employment these women are able to elevate themselves from the cycle of poverty. Within the first few months of working with the program, we actively help these women and their families move off the streets or out of shelters by finding them secure, furnished housing. These women have empowered themselves with the confidence and skills necessary for a more sustainable, financially stable and healthier life. 

The Empowerment Plan is unlike the typical nonprofit model because we not only run and function like a garment business, we also help our employees to advance themselves professionally through learning and effectively utilizing a unique trade skill.
