Domestic violence don’t only leave physical scars, they also leave mental scars that take a lifetime to heal.

When a woman lives with an abusive man, she often feels powerless to leave him, especially when children are involved. Now, a California-based moving company is stepping in to help women get out of these situations.

According to American Overlook, Meathead Movers offers survivors a move completely free of charge. Founded in 1997 by student athletes, the organizations recently teamed up with domestic violence-prevention nonprofit Good Shepherd to help the survivors.

“Meathead Movers will work directly with the nonprofit to identify the abusive situations and provide moving services at no cost,” a spokeswoman says. “Not only do these services help the victims of domestic abuse but they directly impact Meathead employees — consisting of predominantly young men who believe that real men don’t hit women, real men help those in need.”

“It’s unimaginable to think about a woman and her children trying to pack up all their belongings and flee before the abuser returns home,” CEO Aaron Steed said.

The slogan of Meathead Movers is “real men don’t hit women, real men help those in need.” SHARE if you LOVE this!
