The One Habitat FAQs
An organization/initiative aimed to reach out to people who are hurting, going through emotional hard times and living in silence, with their problems, in this generation. This generation is moving towards cutting out human rapport through the rapid growth in technology. People are dying in silence with no one to reach out to. The One Habitat is to fill this gap.
We receive requests from people who are hurting and need some help, counsel or a safe haven. You are encouraged to book/request a call from us while we at the other end, call to listen and hear you out without criticizing, condemning or judging anyone. Our focus is to hear you out, provide a shoulder to cry on and help you through the healing process.
Our Mission is to ensure that you have someone you can talk to; who is willing to listen whenever you want to share a story of pain or hurt without judging you. We are committed to being a listening ear to any hurting person who needs a friend.
