About Shelter Movers:
Shelter Movers provides moving and storage services at no cost to women and children fleeing abuse. We are the only organization of our kind in Canada, and our volunteers are no less exceptional. Every year, in collaboration with community partners, our volunteer teams contribute over 15,000 hours to support people transitioning to lives free of violence and abuse. Our Montreal chapter will launch shortly. We are growing and looking to add caring and compassionate people to our volunteer team.
Scheduling Coordinators recruit volunteers to join move teams, working from Shelter Movers' database of active volunteers to create, send, and respond to e-mails. They are the ‘voice' of Shelter Movers in our volunteers' inboxes, sharing opportunities to help with positivity, encouragement, a sense of purpose, and the joy of our work.
