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 Loneliness Community. While loneliness spans across all of our listed Communities, it is important to recognize that anyone can feel lonely at any time regardless of any circumstance you have going on in your life.
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.
Loneliness is a common feeling that every human being experiences throughout life. The ironic thing about loneliness is—if it is felt so commonly—why do we still feel alone sometimes?
As life goes on, people come and go for many reasons. Those reasons typically do not have anything to do with us, but we may start feeling very alone as people exit our lives. Sometimes, we feel lonely for no specific reason at all.
That is what Listen One is here for. We are looking to connect anybody who is feeling alone or isolated for any possible reason, and give them a place to vent, ask for advice, or simply just communicate with another person in a judgement-free zone. We are here to support you and hear what you have to say, because we care about how you are doing and want to help.
