Better hearing means better community

Hearing loss impacts more than just the person with the loss, it affects friends, families, and communities. When a child can not hear well in school it affects their ability to learn and may be misinterpreted as a behavior issue or learning disability. Research has shown that adults with untreated hearing loss are at risk for under employment and income disparity. Inability to hear is also a safety risk for the person with hearing loss and at times for those around them.    

There are various programs available to help those who would not otherwise be able to afford the treatment they need.  Please contact the organization directly to inquire about their application process.
