Hearing aids can make a real difference in a deaf or hard-of-hearing person’s life. Hearing Charities of America created the Hearing Aid Project because we believe that healthy hearing should be enjoyed by all; regardless of income. Together with our partner providers around the country, we refurbish and dispense hearing aids to those who need them.
