Aaron Steed remembers helping a woman move items out of her home years ago so she could flee an abusive relationship. Steed and his moving company had moved many women in similar situations, but this time things turned scary.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women and one in four men have been victims of some sort of physical violence from a partner. But Meathead Movers, a moving company founded by two brothers and staffed with student athletes, is making it a little easier from victims to pack up and go. Hoda Kotb presents the latest installment of TODAY’s inspiring Hope to It series.
Abusive relationships often involve deep psychological ties and habitual living that's hard to escape. But one of the other key hurdles to leaving an abusive partner is the real, physical work of packing up and getting out.
Meathead Movers uses the brawn and brains of student athletes to help residents relocate and leads the way in moving to end domestic violence by rallying other companies across the country to do the same.
Getting out of an abusive relationship isn’t easy—but actually packing up and moving out is even more daunting. Hundreds of women have Aaron and Evan Steed to thank for coming to the rescue. These owners of a California moving company have volunteered to complete the move for them, free of charge.
California-based moving company Meathead Movers provides just that. Since 1999, they've offered cost-free moving services to help people experiencing intimate partner abuse to leave their relationship quickly and safely.
Leaving an abusive home situation can be extremely difficult due to a myriad of obstacles, including financial abuse. One California moving company is aiming to help those in need by doing an awesome thing: providing free moving services. Meathead Movers, a company based in central California, has partnered with domestic abuse non-profit organization Good Shepherd to help victims escape their situations.
Moving is stressful. Leaving an abusive relationship is daunting. But two brothers who own a moving company in central California are doing their best to make this transition as worry-free and supportive as possible.
Aaron and Evan Steed were busy high school athletes looking for a job that wouldn’t interfere with their practice schedule.
By now, chances are you've heard of Meathead Movers, the moving company that helps victims of domestic violence escape their abusers for free.
