The HLAA Walk4Hearing began in 2006 with just 6 walks and a dream of raising awareness for the hearing loss community. Ten years later, 22 walks around the country have made HLAA’s Walk4Hearing one of the largest fundraising events for people with hearing loss. Besides funds, the walks bring much-needed visibility to an often invisible condition. Please join other Southern Californians as we walk for the common goal of raising funds and awareness to the hearing loss community.
Thanks to Joe and Lisa Beth Snyder, our April 16th garage sale was a great success, netting over $1,000! They went above and beyond the call of duty, and we cannot thank them enough.
Rap Session – Connecting with New and Old Members
We haven’t had a rap session for awhile, so thought it would be a good time to get back to what we do best – offer mutual support, understanding and compassion.

Our Annual HLAA-LA garage sale is right around the corner. This year our garage sale will be held at the home of Joe and Lisa Beth Snyder in Altadena. This fundraiser is one of our biggest efforts as we try to raise $1000 that goes toward the cost of captioning our meetings. At the end of the sale, any unsold items are always donated to charity.
