Detroit Lions Foundation

The Detroit Lions Foundation is changing the game for Lions communities by investing in strategic partnerships to empower youth for lasting, transformative change with a focus in our hometown of Detroit. Through fundraising, grant making and events, we seek a Lions community in which all youth can reach their fullest potential.

Local Support

Darius Robinson

The Empowerment Plan focuses on permanently elevating families from the generational cycle of homelessness by hiring single parents from local shelters who are trained to become full-time seamstresses to earn a stable income, find secure housing, and regain their independence. Funding from the Detroit Lions covers the cost of 400 sleeping bag coats manufactured by these seamstresses. The coats are then distributed at Lions supported events throughout the winter.
