About Us

Hearing Loss Association of America (www.hearingloss.org) is the nation’s largest organization for people with hearing loss. HLAA-Los Angeles is one of approximately 200 chapters nationwide and we share the mission of our National Organization. We work at the local level to open the world of communication through information, education, advocacy and support.

We want you to know that you are not alone.

It is estimated that 1 out of 10 people has some degree of hearing loss, and this loss impacts every aspect of our lives.  Whether at face-to-face meetings or online, our goal is to provide mutual support as we educate ourselves, our families, friends, co-workers, educators, hearing healthcare providers, legislative entities and others about hearing loss. While we promote the concept of self-help, we work to sensitize the general population about the special needs of those with hearing loss, its nature and causes.
