Mend on the Move, a 501(c)(3) non-profit social enterprise, employs survivors of abuse in Metro Detroit to create jewelry which provides them with an income while in recovery. Our jewelry is created from salvaged auto parts and car seat leather, symbolic of our commitment to serve women locally in the "motor city".
Jewelry making is the tool we use to do our real work, which is helping our makers feel valued, gain confidence, independence and healing in a caring, safe work space. Our makers are contributing to an empowering movement that is helping abused women take back their lives.
We go to recovery homes, where our survivor makers live, and work on-site from a mobile studio, which serves as both creation station and retail space for events and markets.
