Who We Are..
What We Do...
Right now, there are only three of us running this Chapter. We are volunteering our time and energy to serving this community by helping to educate, advocate, and provide information to many people who are not always interested in what we are about. There is a certain stigma or disgrace to saying anything about being ‘hard of hearing’ or ‘deaf’ these days. However, I am the first to say that I am and have many problems because of it. No one informed me that I had this INVISIBLE DISABILITY, and I suffered all my life because of it. Now I am paying for it. Are you?
Today, science and research show what hearing loss does to the brain and the body when untreated. There is an urgency to getting out the word and to make sure everyone, young and old, knows what is at stake here. The Hearing Loss Association of America is a special organization, which focuses on people with hearing loss. Our Chapter is part of that organization. We focus on people with hearing loss. We are a family that understands all of the nuances of what it means to not being able to hear in a hearing world. There is a distinct difference between the two. I have always been in the non-hearing world.
