Shelter Movers is a national, volunteer-powered charitable organization that provides moving and storage services at no cost to women and children experiencing abuse.We collaborate with local businesses and community agencies in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Halifax to support families transitioning to a life free of violence. The Montreal chapter will launch in the summer 2020. Volunteer Movers are the core of the organization by assisting in each of the three types of moves: Urgent Exit, Escorted Move, and Resettlement Move. In a group of 2-4 movers, volunteers will load/unload client’s belongings into cargo van and transport client to predetermined location. Movers who have a valid driver’s license are welcome to register as drivers. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to make a big impact in a small amount of time. Each move is only 2-4 hours, and you can sign up for as many moves as you would like. However, we encourage a minimum of 2 moves a month
