Detroit Lions Charities

Detroit Lions Charities supports transformational efforts in underserved communities, working to create long lasting impact through meaningful partnerships with local non-profits. Throughout the year, the Detroit Lions work to raise awareness and funding for these organizations, prioritizing critical needs in the community, with an emphasis on youth development, access and opportunity and social justice initiatives in Detroit.

Local Support

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.
