Tony Mira, CEO and Founder of MiraMed, talks about his involvement with the Empowerment Plan, "Our goal was two-pronged and long-reaching. We wanted to aid the homeless in the neighborhoods where we live and work. But we also wanted to do more than clothe the homeless—we wanted to make a lasting impact in their lives by working to change the generational cycle of homelessness. Working with the innovative Empowerment Plan allowed us to do just that."

Partnering with The Empowerment Plan, a Detroit-based nonprofit organization, allowed us to reach our goals. The Empowerment Plan provides coats (that turn into sleeping bags) to shelters, both locally and throughout the county. But they also do so much more.
The Empowerment Plan hires single parents from local shelters and provides them with training and full-time employment as seamstresses allowing them to earn a stable income, find secure housing and regain their independence.
