Local Chapter Support and Information

Local chapters are dedicated to meeting people where they are: in their community. Chapters all across the state host neighborhood support meetings, build hearing-friendly spaces, and hold social events. Visitors are invited and always welcome to attend any meeting. All meetings are fully hearing-accessible, with live captions, usually in a looped room.

If none of these locations are convenient to your home, contact us at info@hearingloss-wa.org about getting involved in starting a new group. Chapters may request contributions to cover local expenses.

Note: During the pandemic, these chapter meetings are on hold. We encourage you to join online webinars, meetings, and classes to stay connected until we can meet again in person.
