Sertoma is proud to partner with the Hearing Charities of America to provide our clubs with personal sound amplifiers through the Amplified Hearing program. These out-of-the-box devices are wearable electronic products that fit in the ear and are intended to amplify sounds. We know that sound amplifiers are not a fit for everyone, especially those needing something permanent. However, for populations unable or unwilling to care for hearing aids, those receiving end-of-life care, or people who need temporary assistance, they can be a great solution.
We encourage clubs to find local partners who may benefit from these devices. Ideas may include:
- Homeless shelters
- Emergency shelters
- Crisis centers
- Rehab facilities
