OUR MISSION

We're a Detroit based organization focused on educating, employing, and empowering homeless individuals to create a better life for themselves and their families while producing a humanitarian product for those in need.

The Empowerment Plan employs and trains homeless single parents to manufacture a garment that serves as both a coat and a sleeping bag. These coats are then distributed back to those in need across the nation. 

Through training and steady employment the individuals we hire are able to elevate themselves from the cycle of poverty. Within the first few months of working with our program, everyone is able to move off the streets or out of shelters into secure and furnished housing. We focus on empowering our team with the confidence and skills necessary for a more sustainable, financially stable and healthier life. 

We currently have a total staff of 25 and are on track to manufacture and distribute 6,500 coats this year. We are already in 29 states and 4 Canadian provinces and are excited to continue to expand our reach. 

We believe in giving second chances to those who want it, and warmth to those who need it. #spreadthewarmth
