Goal

Certified Listeners is a not-for-profit community service organization, built by people who are dedicated to providing early-stage emotional support to anyone who needs it, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. While not a 'crisis helpline', we believe that assisting in the community by means of personal support, helping residents navigate life's challenges by means of early-stage and real-time interventions, we help eveyone make better mental health lifetstyle choices that enhance and make for happier, healthier lives. Our mission furthermore is one of bridging the gap between early support and the need for professional assistance.

THIS MONTH (December), we're continuing our fundraising initiatives that include secondary school students and their local high schools. We want you to 'get the word out' about Certified Listeners, plus invite financial support of our cause, by means of 'messaging' on FACEBOOK!

Donations through your 'networking' will sustain and enhance our programs and critical outreach into your community to support mental health needs.

You can make such a difference, while you earn important 'community service' hours required for your graduation!

Based upon your success in raising money, however, your school can BENEFIT! When the campaign ends, Certified Listeners will tally the total amount of money raised by students in attendance at your high school, and if your high school is among the top 10 fundraisers in the campaign, your school will receive 10% of what you raised! So, get your fellow students involved!
