Empowerment Plan

Posted By: Sandie Weathers (June 24, 2016)
This is a Detroit non-profit which produces a product that can be used as a sleeping bag, winter coat, or a bag for the homeless. The product decreases the number of deaths related to hypothermia. They also hire mostly previously homeless individuals to make the product, improving their quality of life. Each coat costs about 100 dollars to produce. So they can use the funds to produce more coats or for things like daycare sponsorships for the employees.
