What is Coats of Compassion?
Believing in God’s Word and Spirit
The Coats of Compassion Project was born out of Bishop James Dixon’s sincere concern for families in poverty across Houston, Texas and the nations Bishop Dixon says, “Children are vulnerable to health issues when cold weather arises.
Studies have shown their immune systems are compromised during colder temperatures.” However, winter spares few communities the wrath of icy temperatures. Bishop Dixon further says, “The protection of a winter coat is immeasurable.”
The winter coat distribution began with another humanitarian organization Bishop Dixon leads called, “Good Gang USA.” Members are middle and high school students who are at risk of joining a gang and committing juvenile crime. Bishop Dixon discovered few children had winter coats to brave the elements during outdoor activities, walking to school and other events. His congregation at The Community of Faith Church began delivering winter coats in the project’s first year. They were astounded when thousands of other families requested help. As the demand increased, Bishop Dixon continued to work tirelessly to meet the need.
Currently, Bishop James Dixon Ministries is creating a plan for coat distribution across the nation. Hundreds of Thousands of children are in need of winter coats every year. Coats of Compassion and Bishop James Dixon invite you to join us in providing winter coasts to children in Houston and across the country.
