Assistant Marketing Manager
Shelter Movers Vancouver
WORK FROM HOME (Telecommute), Vancouver & Lower Mainland
Vancouver, British Columbia
2 to 4 hours per week
closes in 128 days (Sat, 10 Oct)

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 Vancouver chapter has been operational since November 2018 and has completed over 120 moves in that time span. We are growing and looking to add caring and compassionate people to our volunteer team.


Shelter Movers will continue to operate and provide our unique moving and storage services with stringent measures in place to protect our volunteers, partners, and clients. While we all do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and stay home, we must remember that home isn’t a safe place for many. Those experiencing abuse may have to spend more time with their abuser in an unsafe, confined space as well as potentially losing their job and the financial independence that comes with it. There have been published articles that highlight mandatory social distancing measures that place individuals experiencing abuse at a greater risk than pre-pandemic.
