The Empowerment Plan is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the homeless community. Our goal is to help build a better life for those that have become trapped in the cycle of homelessness. We mostly hire homeless parents from local shelters to become full-time seamstresses so that they can earn a stable income, find secure housing, and gain back their independence for themselves and for their families.

The individual we hire are trained to manufacture a coat that transforms into a sleeping bag at night, and a bag when not in use. The coats are distributed to homeless people living on the streets at no cost to them through partnerships we have established with outreach organizations in communities around the nation.

We believe in giving second chances to those who want it and providing warmth to those who need it.
