The Empowerment Plan Coat
- The Empowerment Plan can produce 1,000 coats on a budget of $100,000. Our studies show that for each 1,000 coats distributed, we can save 14 lives. Each year approximately 7% of homeless individuals die from hypothermia. Our coat reduces this statistic by over 20%.
- It costs $100 to sponsor a coat, which covers the cost of labor, materials, and overhead expenses.
- While these coats will save lives this winter, our ultimate partnership goal is to bring an Empowerment Plan factory to Chicago.
