Listen.One is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of a small team of volunteers working to make a difference in the individual lives of others. We believe we are made to love all our neighbors, and that includes getting to know who they are. 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.
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.
Since about 90% of our nonprofit runs virtually, there are frequent costs for the technology we implement into our services. Along with keeping our website up to date, launching new marketing campaigns, hiring developers and designers to create easier methods to come into contact with Sharers, we also use technology to run background checks on volunteers, use a shared inbox application to connect volunteers with Sharers, run ads on social media to reach more people, and much more.
Just one extra dollar can go a long way for Listen.One. Help us help more people.
