Find an HLAA State Organization or Chapter in Your Area

Visit one of our HLAA Chapters nationwide to meet and talk with others who also have hearing loss. HLAA Chapters provide peer support, educational programs, all in a communication accessible environment. You’ll see it’s okay not to hear well when you attend a chapter function because people with all degrees of hearing loss come to learn about coping strategies, technology, and about local resources that help you live successfully with hearing loss.

The HLAA national office, state organizations and local HLAA Chapters are a united effort of people working to make hearing loss an issue of national concern and to provide information, education, advocacy, and support.

To see if there is an HLAA State Organization or Chapter in your area, click on your state. States that do not link means currently there is no organization there. If there are no HLAA State Organizations or Chapters near you, consider starting one!
