Who We Are
People here for people.
Launched in 2021 in Durham, NC following one of the loneliest years for millions around the world, CONTACT Line provides free, comprehensive support for loneliness through face-to-face online conversations with volunteer Listeners in one-on-one settings.
How it Works
Schedule a 30 minute conversation with a rigorously trained volunteer,
or Listener, to discuss anything on your mind.
Meet with the Listener via Zoom. Schedule again with the same Listener and have
up to 6 conversations.
Why We Do What We Do
"I felt incredibly listened to, heard, and understood. It helps so much to have someone with me in the moment, sharing my emotions."
"I never take advice, so the fact that you suggested things that make me feel hopeful says a lot. I feel encouraged and motivated and no longer stuck in a box."
