About Shelter Movers
Shelter Movers is a non-profit organization that provides moving and storage services to any women and children that are experiencing abuse. In order to meet clients’ needs, the organization has access to security personnel, language interpreters, storage facilities and pet foster care. The goal of this organization is to help transition people to a life free from abuse.
The History of Shelter Movers
The story began with Marc Hull-Jacquin, who wanted to make a difference in his local community. After hearing about an organization in the U.S. that helps women leave abusive homes, he became inspired when he learned that no such service existed in Toronto and other major Canadian cities. Since April 2016, Shelter Movers has worked hard to help those that are fleeing domestic abuse.
Shelter Movers This Year and Beyond
Just weeks ago, the organization completed its 500th move in the Toronto and Greater Toronto Area. While Shelter Movers does have 2 other operational chapters in Ottawa and Vancouver, they are also in active conversation with individuals from 4 to 5 cities across Canada looking to start their own Shelter Movers chapter. These cities include Halifax, Quebec City, Waterloo, Hamilton and York Region.
