Do you have a heart for helping people who are in crisis, lonely, hurting or in distress? Our crisis hotline and walk-in center include opportunities for providing emotional and lifestyle support services through empathetic listening and referrals.
One of the most important ways you can support the Listening Ear is by joining our team as a volunteer. If you can volunteer some of your time, from as little as 4 hours a week, you can help make a difference.
All potential new volunteers are required to attend one of the informational orientation sessions listed below. You must submit your volunteer application and bring a printed copy with you to your orientation session:
