About Us

Morris County Chapter

Founded in 2011, the Hearing Loss Association of America, Morris County Chapter, is one of four county chapters of the New Jersey State Association (HLAA-NJ: www.hearingloss-nj.org), which is supported by the national organization, (HLAA: www.hearingloss.org).

The organization benefits all persons with a variety of hearing loss situations — life-long, late-life loss, with (or without) hearing aids and/or cochlear implants. Those who work professionally, or live with the hearing impaired are also welcome to the support group. With invited guest speakers, a wide variety of informative topics concerning the challenges of hearing loss are addressed. The meetings are also a valuable forum for sharing experiences and exchanging information about resources for the hard of hearing in the state.

We empower ourselves through advocacy. The annual NJ Walk4Hearing in October raises money for the HLAA organization and for scholarships. Join our team, “HearOs of Morris County!
