How to volunteer?
Volunteers are the jewels in our crown! We tailor opportunities to match the volunteer. A tour of the facility and a visit with Julie, the volunteer coordinator, allows potential volunteers to better decide if Listening House is the place for them. Volunteers can work directly with guests, or can work behind the scenes. Special skill sets, like haircutting, massage or office work are wonderful, but if you simply like people and want to meet new people, Listening House is an interesting place to pay a visit. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and older.
We ask for a 3-month commitment and an orientation is provided.
To volunteer at Listening House, please contact our Program Director, Julie Borgerding: Julie@listeninghouse.org
Make a Gift
Nearly 75% of annual revenue is provided through individual giving and sponsorship of funding events. This level of generosity allowed Listening House to extend hours and increase the level of services as the need arose. To say staff could not do what we do without donors is an understatement.

Board Approval February 2014
Listening House collects and uses personal information from donors that includes: name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and donor comments when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, Listening House keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used in our development process to analyze overall giving patterns as a way to make accurate budget projections. Listening House does not sell, trade, rent or share names, addresses, e-mail contact or telephone numbers of our donors. Donor contact information is used only for the following purposes:
• To prepare donation receipts
• To thank donors
• To inform donors about news, events, or other Listening House activities
• To perform internal analysis and/or maintain record keeping
• To prepare reports for relevant federal or state agencies (these reports are not for public inspection)
• To contact donors about changes to this policy
As a rule, Listening House publicly recognizes a donor by publishing a donor’s name unless the donor explicitly requests anonymity when making a donation by mail or online.
It’s that time of year again, where donations become plentiful!
At the Listening House the capacity to store donations is very limited. Below is an updated list as to what the Listening House could use. Donations do not need to be new, but we ask that it’s stain free and hole free.
