A Kind Voice, Inc is a small non-profit organization based out of Georgia and started in November of 2012. Our volunteers come from all walks of life including teachers, students, journalists, actors and even a stand-up comedian.
In a world where it is easy to feel a bit isolated, we have created a call-in line, where caller’s can share their thoughts on a book they read, a movie or game they saw or just about any subject they’d like to discuss. Our mission is to make the world a kinder, more connected place, one conversation at a time.
We are open 7 days a week from 9AM to 10PM EST.
Headquartered in Georgia, with volunteers nationwide, we take calls at 800.876.2399.
In a world where we seem more connected than ever, research shows that we are lonelier than ever. By giving folks a way to connect with a kind voice to talk about issues they deem important, we hope to get things moving in a more positive direction.
We ask volunteers to sign up for topics they have great enthusiasm for. We have writers and avid readers taking calls on books, actors and movie buffs taking calls on movies, athletes and sports nuts taking calls on sports, etc… When we receive a call, the caller is first asked if they are experiencing a crisis. If they say yes, the call is routed to a trained counselor on a hotline selected by the caller. If they indicate they are not experiencing a crisis, then the call is confidentially routed to A Kind Voice volunteer.
We were recently featured at Oprah.com in the article “Volunteer Opportunities – Easy Ways to Make a Difference”
