Listen.One is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports individuals who need to talk to somebody. We are not licensed therapists. What sets our service apart from teletherapy and crisis chat lines is that we simply want to be a friend that is open to chat with you about anything – relationships, religion, jobs, lifestyle changes, disabilities, illnesses, and anything else that is going on in your life. While we do not give professional advice, we are open-minded, we listen carefully, and we love you.
Through our non-judgmental chatting service, we have had the privilege of connecting with so many people who are lonely, need a friend, want to vent about their lives, and more. This helps our Sharer, the person that messages us, feel less alone. It also helps our Listeners, the volunteers chatting with you, share their life experience to provide comfort in your situation.
We have several other Communities that we want to support, as they often need a Listener more than the average person. One of those communities is the Addiction/Dependency Community.
We have created specific campaigns for each of these Communities in an effort to encourage donations toward a cause that you may feel more compelled to help. We all need help sometimes, and we want you to know that 97% of your contribution will go toward the Community of your choice, and help Listen.One focus more on providing assistance to that specific cause. 3% will go toward GoFundMe processing fees.
“Remember that just because you hit bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there” – Robert Downey Jr.
Those who suffer from addiction, whether it is to drugs or other impulsions, may feel as though they are completely alone in this world. It can be tough to come to terms with something that makes you feel different.
At Listen One, we fully support the fact that second chances exist, and want our Sharers to know that they will not be judged for who they are or what they have done to get where they are. We want to give you a place to vent your struggles, frustrations, and difficulties while trying to navigate a better life. We encourage our Sharers to foster healthy connections with our Listeners to engage in an open and friendly environment. We know that suffering is painful, but suffering alone is much worse. We want you to feel loved, and provide reassurance when you need it.
