Hearing the Call – Colorado is designed to provide access to quality and affordable hearing health care for qualified individuals in the Centennial State. Six clinics in the state are supporting this initiative. The audiologists have known for years that there were a lot more people who needed hearing healthcare but couldn’t afford it. Our campaign brings hope and healing to the hearing-impaired locally in Colorado. Through quality healthcare, we help people connect with family, education, and opportunities.

1 in 5 Americans suffers from hearing loss to an extent that interferes with communication. We believe no one should miss out on participating fully in life because of hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss has a devastating impact on individuals, families, and communities. Sadly, even Medicare does not cover any of the costs of treating hearing loss, nor do many health insurance plans.
Hearing the Call is a nonprofit campaign bringing hope and healing to the hearing-impaired. Through quality healthcare, we help people connect with family, education, and opportunities.
Our Give Back Model
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.
