HLAA Chicago, Lincoln Park Chapter

“The Chicago Lincoln Park Chapter is important to me because I know I am not alone in my hearing loss journey.” (Deirdre)

“The CLPC is important to me because I have gotten to know a lot of great people that I can share my hearing loss with and them with me, and have access to much more information and resources that I would have not discovered otherwise.” (Lindsay)

“The Walk4Hearing is an important event for me because I get to participate and promote a cause that means the most to me. As someone who has been hard of hearing my whole life, I can be proud of who I am and share my story with so many others who have experienced hearing loss. Hearing loss is such an important issue in our world today and I am so thrilled to be walking for my fourth year.” (Mimi)

For seven years, the Chicago Lincoln Park Chapter has been opening the world of communication to people with hearing loss through information, education support and advocacy.The Chicago Lincoln Park Chapter provides CART, a captioning service for its members in addition to 8-10 available FM neck loops for its members to use. This past year, we have provided workshops on positive communication using Sam Trychin’s workbook. We have also had speakers come on topics like how to handle stress as it pertains to hearing loss.  We also have had speakers from Hi HealthInnovations and Cochlear to come in to talk about technology that would help us hear better in a variety of situations.The Chicago Lincoln Park Chapter continues to work together to provide resources and information as well as spreading awareness to our members. The Chicago Lincoln Park Chapter would like to have more neck loops available to provide to all members as our chapter is continually growing.

Your support of our Chicago, Lincoln Park Chapter would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
HLAA Chicago, Lincoln Park Chapter
