Abusive relationships are not only emotionally scarring, but the physical feat of having to move from one place to another can feel nearly impossible. Sometimes, abuse victims must pack their belongings, gather their children, secure a new location, and flee the home before the abuser returns home. The financial burden alone may cause victims to stay in abusive living situations.

A California-based moving company is going viral with its incredible mission. Meathead Movers, founded in 1997 by student athletes, helps victims of domestic violence move out of their homes — completely free of charge. The company recently partnered with domestic violence-prevention nonprofit Good Shepherd. “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.”

In just one week, the burly, big-hearted movers have already helped four families leave their homes for a fresh new start. Meathead Movers, you guys are absolutely amazing.
