When someone feeling alone and isolated experiences a caring connection;
when a woman with an aging parent suffering from dementia can share her story with a listening presence;
when a patient with a life-threatening illness can talk about his fears to a caring ear;
when an abused woman finds comfort in safely telling her story to a nonjudgmental listener;
-that is the power of BeFriender Ministry.
BeFriender Ministry is a national, ecumenical non-profit organization that provides leadership training and ongoing support for a listening ministry of care and support in churches, hospitals, senior living communities including all levels of care, or other organizations.
Since the early 1980’s BeFrienders have been providing skilled pastoral care throughout the nation.
