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 Veterans 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.
Veterans make an incredible contribution to our country. It is often said that those who are in the service or retired may have trouble connecting with others due to their rich experiences and life-changing encounters. It is common to feel different from your loved ones if you experienced a traumatic event or injury.
It may also feel as though you have simply lived such a different life from your peers, and now you don’t really know what to talk about. This can be isolating. Listen One understands that every single person has the desire to be heard and understood, and that is what we are here to do. Our organization supports veterans and offers a supportive environment to foster connections between Listeners and those who need an open ear.
