Description: Dubbed the “living room of the homeless,” Listening House is a day shelter and community center providing hospitality, practical assistance and guidance to men and women who are disadvantaged, homeless or lonely.
People in transition or crisis feel isolated and need a welcoming space where they can feel connected and accepted. We strive to create a safe environment that supports people going through change, knowing we are not change-makers and that lasting change must come from within. We accept people where they’re at; set expectations for courteous, lawful behavior and help them plan a course forward.
A basic safety net of services includes hygiene products, clothing, message delivery, telephone use, haircuts, foot care (including socks/shoes/boots) and essential first aide. Onsite partner professionals consist of mental and chemical health outreach teams, housing advocates, chiropractic care, medical screening and veteran’s assistance.
