Welcome to the Listening House

Occupying Hearts – Offering Resources

Listening House is a sanctuary from the streets where practical assistance, counsel and a friendly ear are offered to people who are homeless, disadvantaged or lonely.  Staff and volunteers aspire to create a sense of community and connection by promoting respect for all.  Respect nurtures hope, which in turn strengthens personal resolve toward positive change.

Our doors open to up to 140 adults each day. Though our space is humble, friendships are rich and we actively engage with surrounding businesses to be a good neighbor. Support comes from a variety of sources and includes financial contributions, in-kind donations, professional services, and over 10,000 hours of volunteer assistance, annually.
