2017 EPC Nominee: Marc Hull-Jacquin

Marc Hull EPC

 

Marc Hull-Jacquin of Toronto, ON, was nominated by Jse-Che Lam

Marc Hull-Jacquin is founder and executive director of The Shelter Movers of Toronto, a non-profit moving service for women who have experienced domestic abuse. Marc was on parental leave with his third child when he recognized that such a service was needed to address the problem of violence against women.

Shelter Movers provides women with free and safe access in which to retrieve her belongings.  This is especially crucial when a woman already has concerns regarding her personal safety, that of her family’s, as well as the next steps in securing shelter. The volunteers at the Shelter Movers of Toronto also offer women emotional and physical support when they return to their former homes to reclaim their belongings.

Since establishing 16 months ago, Shelter Movers has moved over 220 families in Toronto and the GTA. Currently, Shelter Movers' volunteers are performing 4 per week, and recently expanded beyond the GTA to serve Ottawa.

Marc and his team are making a profound difference in giving their clients the chance to rebuild their lives in an environment free of violence.
