Scarlet Listeners is a free & confidential student run peer counseling and referral hotline based out of Rutgers University in New Jersey. For forty years we have served not only the Rutgers University community, but the surrounding communities as well. As trained paraprofessionals, we strive to provide our callers with a comforting and supportive safe-space, founded on the basis of listening, love, and referrals to other organizations.
We have a true passion for helping others, and will try our best to create a comfortable and nonjudgemental space. Since we are a volunteer organization, our counselors really do want to be there for you, we truly do care. You are never alone.
