The League for the Hard of Hearing mission is to improve the quality of life for infants, children, and adults with all degrees of hearing loss.
We accomplish our mission by providing hearing rehabilitation and human services for people who are hard of hearing or deaf, and their families, regardless of age, ability to pay, or mode of communication, and by striving to empower consumers to achieve their potential. Our leadership is exemplified by adhering to the highest clinical standards, conducting extensive hearing conservation and public education programs about hearing. And developing best practice models for disciplines that related to hearing and research.
Social Events regardless of ability to pay:
To counter the sense of isolation which often accompanies hearing loss, and to reinforce positive, pro-active opportunities for interaction and recreation, the League sponsors enjoyable social gatherings and groups for deaf and hard of hearing individuals of all ages, and their families. Most activities are free, and no one is ever excluded for financial reasons.
