Mend on the Move is a 501(c)(3) non-profit social enterprise serving Metro Detroit that empowers and employs women survivors of abuse through jewelry making. Our workers take pride in seeing their creations being admired and sold retail. In selling and promoting our products, we strive to increase awareness of the injustices that silence and hold captive the women we serve. We currently travel to our workers and set up shop where they live while they are in recovery, but to serve our women more efficiently, we are raising funds for a mobile studio with dual purpose as a creation station and a retail space.
