WEST BLOOMFIELD — Mend on the Move, a West Bloomfield-based nonprofit, is raising money to live up to its name and hit the road in a mobile studio.
Mend on the Move was founded in 2015 by Joanne Ewald, a West Bloomfield resident and survivor of abuse.
“Mend on the Move employs women who are abuse survivors,” said Ewald. “They create jewelry made from auto parts so they can have a source of income while they go through the recover program.”
