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 staff 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.
NOTE: WE ARE ASKING VOLUNTEERS TO TAKE A SHORT BREAK FROM LISTENING HOUSE AT THIS TIME. WE ARE REASSESSING THE COVID-19 FREQUENTLY AND WILL STAY IN TOUCH!
To volunteer at Listening House, please contact email@example.com.

Include Listening House In Your Will
Making a gift in your will, known as a bequest, is a simple way to support the future of Listening House. A gift in your estate helps meet the needs of our guests who count on Listening House to be a refuge from the streets and the elements. Additionally, planned giving arrangements can also help you meet your financial goals by reducing your federal estate taxes. Your gift may take the form of a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your overall estate. Suggested bequest language: “I give and bequeath to Listening House of St. Paul, a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located in St. Paul, Minnesota, % of my estate (or the sum of $ dollars).”
Any questions can be answered by Cheryl Peterson, Executive Director of Listening House. Please contact her at 651-227-5911 or email: email@example.com
Thank you again for your generosity!
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.
