Hearing Other People’s Experiences (HOPE)

We’re excited to bring you our new virtual (online) support group: HOPE.

HOPE is thoughtfully designed so that people with hearing loss can share successes and victories and ask questions. We help one another by listening and talking about what’s worked for ourselves and others. The goal is to create a safe, welcoming space for everyone as we encourage and support each other and learn how to live and thrive with hearing loss. Friends and family are welcome, too, as are those who would just like to relax and listen to people who understand.

Our next HOPE meeting is February 2, 2022, 4:00 – 5:15 pm. Meetings are always free, live-captioned, and open to everyone. Register for the February 2, 2022, HOPE meeting here.

HLAA-WA HOPE is organized by our all-volunteer HOPE Crew: Devin Myers, Carolyn Odio, Kimberly Parker, Jerry Paulukonis, Cheri Perazzoli, Glenda Philio, and Karen Utter.
