Empathetic Strangers

Empathetic Strangers is a place for humans to connect with a peer one to one. This non-emergency call line is available for you to talk to someone who wants to be there for you. 


You can talk about whatever is on your mind, share your joys and successes, or vent your frustrations or worries. It is your time with another human, and use it for what you need.
