We believe in the power of listening 


Whatever you’re facing— illness, pain, grief, loneliness, anxiety, uncertainty, or questions about matters of faith—we want to listen.


We train communities to become better listeners by focusing on the importance of empathy, listening with intention, and being fully present.


We do not turn anyone away based on their ability to pay for services. Instead, we rely on donations to support our mission.

Someone To Tell It To’s vision is a world in which everyone matters, everyone is heard, and loneliness is diminished.

Everyone is the “Someone” in Someone To Tell It To. It’s not just us.

We’ve never been about one-way relationships; we always hope to establish a mutual relationship between friends who are sharing life’s journey together.


Improve your relationships

Registration for our Fall 2021 training sessions is now OPEN

Join us in becoming a part of the compassionate listening movement. We are on a mission to create a culture of caring. 


9th Annual Gathering Postponed 

With careful consideration for the safety of our friends and supporters, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone our 9th Annual Gathering, originally scheduled for September 26, 2021.

We thank you all for your understanding, support, and are looking forward to an amazing event in early 2022.


What’s New


…So We Can Hear Something New

In this week’s episode, we talk with John Noltner, who recently set out on a road trip across the United States to rediscover the common humanity that connects us by asking people a simple question: “What does peace mean to you?” 



We Pause…to Listen

On the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001—as we listen to the orations, hear the heart-stirring songs, feel the bugles’ power to call us to silent reflection, see the tears in the eyes of those who still feel the pain of loss, and remember so many stories of courage and sacrifice—we pause to reflect.
We pause…to listen.


What people are saying

“To listen to another’s story is to accept an audacious invitation onto Holy Ground. By their example, Someone To Tell It To teaches us how to take off our shoes, open our hearts and change the world.”

Wm. Paul Young


“Your organization gives me faith and hope in humanity.”

Healthcare Administrator

“It’s good to know that there’s someone. There are people who will listen and let me be who I am. They actually know more about me than anyone else in the world and to me, that’s very significant because your story is like your heart. It’s everything about you.”

Read Johanna’s story

“Even the description of their podcast purpose is a flashlight into the intention of their work. Compassionate. Caring. Kind. Gentle. Understanding. Loving world. Their goal: That you have a story to tell and are worthy of being heard. It’s okay to feel what we are feeling.”
