Covid-19 Hiring Statement
Shelter Movers continues to operate and provide our unique moving and storage services, notwithstanding the COVID-19 pandemic. We have implemented stringent safety measures
to protect our volunteers, staff, partners, and clients.
While we all do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, we acknowledge that home isn’t a safe place for many. Those experiencing abuse may be forced to spend more time in isolation with their abuser. Job loss and financial insecurity have also become more prevalent during the pandemic, statistically leading to an increase in gender-based violence. Shelter Movers has experienced a 30% increase in the demands for our services since the start of the pandemic.
