Hearing loss is the fastest growing chronic condition in North America. Your donation ensures that people who are culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing continue to live productive, engaged, independent lives. Your support brings people with hearing loss and deafness that much closer to equal access to better jobs, higher education, stronger relationships with family and friends.
