Our mission is to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy.
HLAA, Santa Barbara Chapter, was founded by a group of adults with hearing loss. We are dedicated to helping those who face the everyday challenge of living with hearing loss (from mild to profound), along with their family and friends. It’s tough to do this alone and so, once a month, we join together to share our experiences, thoughts, problems, solutions and dreams. We discuss assistive devices, implants, and accessibility issues, and invite knowledgeable speakers to share the latest in hearing technology and gadgets that will help make your life more comfortable.
