Shelter Movers Ottawa provides free moving and storage services to those fleeing abuse in and around Ottawa. We are looking for people who love organization and are good problem solvers. Intake Coordinators are the first point of contact for our clients and therefore an integral part of what we do. The Intake Coordinator gathers information to help moves happen safely and smoothly. This involves answering emails and phone calls, and collecting information using templates. Because we are working with a vulnerable sector, volunteers must be over 18 years old.
