Who We Are

In everyone’s life, there comes a time when doing good, in whatever way that person defines “good”, becomes a powerful and absolute driving force. For the Hard of Hearing for Young People Foundation, each of our founders came together with a common goal of playing a role and making a significant contribution to the hard of hearing international community. Although we each come from different backgrounds, the common denominator in each of us is that driving force to make a difference. It redefines the adage of “strength in numbers”.

Like so many things in our contemporary society, the needs of young people struggling with hearing impairments are bigger than the resources available. Our mission is to close that gap, especially considering the latest advances in technology. As remarkable as it is, the fact is, not everyone can afford to incorporate these recent breakthroughs into their own lives. This is where we hope to make our difference.

Another important cornerstone in our foundation is education. Our mission in this aspect is two-fold: we want to educate the hearing public while also ensuring those in the hard of hearing community have access to the fast-evolving information and technological advances. Ultimately, we want to have a strong presence in communities around the nation and around the world. We know education is key; however, without access to that information, the efforts of those looking for solutions goes unnoticed.

Most recently, the Hard of Hearing for Young People Foundation announced its latest drive to collect unused hearing aids so that they may be refurbished and then distributed to those in need. We believe this is a great way to make a difference and we invite you to join us as we move forward in our efforts. 2012 promises to be amazing year with magnificent strides for the hearing impaired.
