About The Listening Ear Crisis Intervention Center has been open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year since July 15, 1969. We provide free and confidential service for telephone and walk-in clients in crisis.
We have an all-volunteer staff. Volunteers receive more than 60 hours of training before ever picking up the phone. All director and coordinator positions are filled by volunteers. Many staff members choose to receive additional training in order to join oursexual assault counseling staff or to become trainers themselves.
Our volunteers are trained to deal with crises that include depression, suicide, loneliness, sexual assault, grief, and many others. We also provide referrals for services
