Partnerships are invaluable when it comes to raising community awareness about hearing health issues and pointing those impacted by hearing loss to the information, resources and support they need. Hearing Charities of America has developed a network of partnerships across the country that share in our mission.

The American Academy of Audiology (AAA) is a professional organization for audiologists. AAA provides quality hearing care services through professional development, education, research and increased public awareness of hearing and balance disorders. AAA has helped make Hearing Charities’ A Sound Investment Campaign possible.

HHF also publishes Hearing Health magazine, a free consumer resource on hearing loss and related technology, research, and products.
The Hearing Loop
Hearingloop.org is a nonprofit informational website dedicated to looping induction technologies. The site provides an overview of the technologies that transmit sound directly to a hearing aid where the technology is installed. Hearingloop.org is partnering with Hearing Charities in our “A Sound Investment” campaign.
Hearing Loss Association of America
The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) provides information and advocacy for people with hearing loss. The HLAA supports individuals at the national and local levels with over 200 chapters in communities throughout the nation. They offer educational opportunities to professionals in the hearing field, as well as people with hearing loss. The goal is to empower them to learn more about their hearing loss and what resources are available to them.
Composed of more than 400 clubs across the country, this civic service organization’s primary goal is to reach those affected by hearing loss and communicative disorders. Sertoma’s members do this through educational programs such as Sertoma SAFEEars!, scholarships and the Adopt-An-Agency program. Sertoma is the founding partner of Hearing Charities.
