What Day is This?

Happy Anniversary to HLAA!

It's November 27 and 36 years ago today on November 27, 1979, Rocky Stone founded our organization as Self Help for Hard of Hearing People. Rocky realized there were people who were "between two worlds" like himself -- not fully hearing but not deaf. He founded the organization we now call the Hearing Loss Association of America.

If it weren't for Rocky, we wouldn't know YOU -- our leaders and chapter members who work on behalf of people with hearing loss in local communities. Thank you.

In the Spirit of Rocky, Honor Someone with an Award Nomination

  • Spirit of HLAA Award
