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 using auto parts and salvaged car seat leather.
Empowering + Employing Survivors
Our makers create and share their stories in community. They learn a skill, build confidence and begin to recognize that their lives have value and purpose. Employment through Mend is one component of many other wraparound services, such as therapy, spirituality and social service resources that a survivor needs to restore and rebuild her life. And so, it is also our goal to help survivors connect the dots to Mend's community of resources.
