Participation

MFA - Sargent - large group

HLAA Boston provides wonderful opportunities for people with hearing loss to work hand in hand with others experiencing similar challenges.  We encourage all of our members to let us know their areas of interest and to use the resources of the chapter to create new programs or help with ones already established.  Because we are a group of peer volunteers, we enthusiastically welcome your energies in support of chapter life in a wide range of areas, including
  • outreach and membership development
  • social events
  • meeting planning
  • advocacy initiatives, especially in promoting  captions and assistive listening technologies, particularly loops, in public places
  • Walk4Hearing planning and Walk day volunteering
  • mentoring persons who are new to hearing loss and/or membership in the chapter

Fabulous food and quiet - until around 7:30!      Kim Labrecque served on the Massachuetts Hearing Aids for Children Coalition, a grass roots organization that successfully advocated for insurance coverage for children's hearing aids in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Currently, Kim serves as the chair of the New England Walk4Hearing. Under her leadership, participation in the New England Walk has reached record levels, and the walk continues to draw people from all over Greater Boston and New England as a celebration of solidarity and source of significant funding for community programs for the Deaf, deaf and hard of hearing.

We welcome your participation and  support!  To let us know if you’d like to join us,  send us an email:
