CONTACT Listeners

Are you looking for an opportunity to enrich your life while helping others in your community?

Do you have a knack for listening? If you think you have a special way with people — an ability to listen empathetically and provide unconditional acceptance — we invite you to become a CONTACT Listener.

“CONTACT We Care offers volunteers a unique opportunity to work directly with individuals in need. To be able to have this one-on-one direct connection is a unique and rewarding volunteer opportunity.”

— Sue Fasano, Training Director

As a CONTACT Listener you will answer calls to CONTACT’s award-winning Caring & Crisis Hotline.

Beginning with the highest quality, comprehensive training program and continuing with on-going supervision and advanced trainings, CONTACT We Care ensures that each and every CONTACT Listener is prepared to deal with the wide range of issues they will confront on the phone lines. The 50-hour Volunteer Training Program is taught by experts in active listening, grief recovery, mental health issues, substance abuse, and suicide intervention. It is dynamic and highly interactive.

As a CONTACT Listener, you would be asked to make a commitment to serving eight hours per month on the Caring and Crisis Line. We offer a totally flexible schedule. Pick the days and times that work best for you!

CONTACT Listeners must be at least 18 years old.

CONTACT We Care training takes place in Westfield, NJ.
