People start to heal the moment they feel heard.

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. 


If you're interested, we'd love to hear your feedback on what you liked (or disliked) about each conversation with a Listener.

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."
