WE HAVE AN ALL VOLUNTEER STAFF
Volunteers receive more than 60 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.
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.
While we welcome both positive and negative feedback from community members, comments that are unrelated to given posts or that are of a harassing nature are subject to removal at the discretion of Listening Ear moderators. Continued harassment will result in being blocked from our page. Additionally, we will block any profiles that we determine to be fake in order to assure that the community is properly and fairly represented. Any questions on this should be directed to our business line +1 517 337 1717
We have been open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year since July 15, 1969 to provide free and confidential service for telephone and walk-in clients in crisis.
