We've been busy since the
Listening Ear was founded in 1969...
50+ Yrs of Service
and we do more than just listen...
The Ear participates at many local community events, such as food bank distributions, health fairs, and acting as advocates for those in need.
We've worked with schools and other organizations to teach listening skills, empathy, gender identity, and address bullying.
Our volunteers receive over 60 hours of training before ever picking up the phone, in addition to ongoing continuing education classes.
We receive financial support from cities, counties, and the State as well as other organizations and individuals from around the country.
