 "Sometimes it hurts too much not to talk... That's the worst, when the secret stays locked up for want of an understanding ear."

The Listening Ear Crisis Intervention Center has been open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year since July 15, 1969. We provide free and confidential service for telephone and walk-in clients in crisis.

We define crisis as "any situation in which your normal coping mechanisms are ineffective or unavailable."  Our volunteers are trained to deal with crises that include depression, suicide, loneliness, sexual assault, grief, and many others.  We also provide referrals for services throughout the Lansing area.  (The referral database will open in a new window).

We have an all-volunteer staff.  Volunteers receive more than 65 hours of training before ever picking up the phone.  All director and coordinator positions are filled by volunteers. Many staff members choose to receive additional training in order to join our sexual assault counseling staff or to become trainers themselves.

The 5th Annual d'Ear Trail 10k Race and 5k Walk was held Sunday, November 3, 2013. The run was at Lake Lansing North Park amidst lovely fall colors. After the race, walkers, runners, dogs, kids and volunteers all gathered in the shelter to eat chili and enjoy each others company.
