Hearing the Call Southwest Florida
Our Story

Hearing the Call – Southwest Florida provides access to quality and affordable hearing healthcare for qualified individuals in the Southwest Florida area. Dr. Chippendale has practiced in this area since 1988, and she has known for years that there are many people who needed hearing healthcare but are unable to afford it. This campaign brings hope and healing to the hearing-impaired locally in Southwest Florida. Through quality healthcare, we help people connect with family, education, and opportunities.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide hearing healthcare to individuals in Southwest Florida who cannot afford it on their own while providing them with opportunities to give back to the community through service to others.

Our Vision

Our vision is that NO PERSON is prevented from full participation in life due to hearing loss.

Our Promise

Our promise and passion is to help people who want to stay active and engaged rediscover hearing clearly and without strain.

The Need

1 in 5 Americans suffers from hearing loss to an extent that interferes with communication. Nearly 3 million Floridians are affected by hearing loss and less than half of the adults who reported difficulty hearing had seen a hearing healthcare provider in the past 5 years. A large percentage of Floridians over the age of 65 currently reside in assisted living communities. Many of these people do not have access to affordable hearing healthcare.

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.
