The Minnesota Give Hear Project is designed to provide access to quality and affordable hearing healthcare for qualified individuals in the Twin Cities. Hearing Health Clinic in Osseo, Minnesota, has known for years that there were a lot more people who needed hearing healthcare but couldn't afford it.
"I cannot ignore helping someone in my community who has a hearing loss. Hearing is incredibly important for overall health, relationships and quality of life. We want to make hearing health care accessible to anyone, and the Give Hear project allows us to do that." - Heidi Hill, Audiologist, Hearing Health Clinic.
In 2017, Hearing Health Clinic partnered with HearCare Connection to bring the Give Hear Project to their community. Our desire is to bridge the gap for those who cannot access audiology care due to financial need. Our vision is that no person is prevented from full participation in life due to hearing loss.
Qualified participants will show proof of financial need, pay a small fee for their hearing devices and give back volunteer hours in their community as a way to say "Thank you" to the local companies, families and friends that are donating for their care.
We Need You!
Hearing aids, hearing tests, appointments with licensed audiologists, and check ups are all included in the program. We are able to offer these services at a discount because of the generous donations of the Twin Cities Community. Would you consider giving today so that other's can receive the Gift of Hearing?
PLEASE DONATE TODAY!
HearCare Connection was started in 2011 as a nonprofit local audiology center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Our work with the deaf and hearing impaired in our community showed us the exponential need for hearing healthcare support for individuals who were uninsured or under-insured for hearing healthcare. Our clinic has seen explosive growth in our efforts to provide hearing aids and follow up hearing healthcare at reduced cost and on a sliding fee scale.
We started to wonder about the thousands of other communities around the U.S. who didn't have a local nonprofit clinic. We wanted to know if we could transfer some of the principles of how we provide care ( in partnership with local audiologists ) to bring something sustainable to other cities. The Give Hear project was born in 2016 with our first partner, Hearing Health Clinic in Minnesota.
We know what a difference this program has made to our friends and neighbors in Fort Wayne, IN. We're excited to see the growth of hearing healthcare around the nation and it's our desire to see more and more people everyday receive the Gift of Hearing. Won't you join your hands with ours and help create a partnership that's reconnecting People to People and People to Community? Give Hear!
