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.
A Move Coordinator is an integral part of the move team, providing coordination of the move beforehand and on-call support on the day of a move. The Move Coordinator ensures all moves go smoothly, that volunteer movers and drivers are recruited, and tackles any unforeseen challenges.
