Rosemarie Reger-Rumsey
Executive Director
“Being part of this community reminds me daily of how easy it is to take our blessings for granted. Clean socks and underwear, grabbing a change of season coat, the warmth of home and people to listen to my ideas and thoughts. Listening House was and remains a beautiful concept: Create a space where anyone can belong. It is a place where the dark side of life abuts the best side of humanity! Where human weakness does not exclusively define someone, and where people flourish by being kind to one another.”

Julie Borgerding
Program Director
“I have served people who are homeless for over 20 years, and each experience taught me relationship is the greatest instigator for healing and change. In Listening House, we all can grow and change.”
