Hearing Charities of America
The purpose of Hearing Charities of America is to support those impacted by speech and hearing disorders by expanding awareness, volunteerism and philanthropy in the communities Hearing Charities serves. Hearing Charities provides resources for hearing professionals, manufacturers and individuals with hearing issues. They accomplish this through three related activities: awareness programs, scholarships and Adopt-An-Agency. These activities support Hearing Charities’ mission of commitment to communication in every community. Sertoma is the founding sponsor of Hearing Charities of America.
