HEAR Wisconsin is our summer Share the Plate partner. HEAR Wisconsin is a local nonprofit that helps people of all ages with hearing loss by eliminating communication and language barriers through personalized services, technology, and education.
For 95 years, HEAR Wisconsin has provided comprehensive services for people of all ages, with all degrees of hearing loss. They serve approximately 6,000 people each year. Their programs respect diversity and communication choice, foster independence, and transform lives.
HEAR Wisconsin does not turn anyone away who needs hearing healthcare, evaluations, hearing aid fittings/repairs, assistive technology, therapy, sign language interpreting, and more. They know that good hearing and communication are essential at all stages of life and that hearing loss can be avoided or slowed down through preventive actions taken as soon as possible. Untreated hearing loss can lead to poor academic performance, loss of jobs, increased incidence of dementia, cognitive decline, and other negative physical/mental health effects.
HEAR Wisconsin is hitting the road. They now bring services directly to local community members and businesses with Wisconsin’s first-ever nonprofit Mobile Audiology Clinic (MAC). First Church will be scheduling a MAC visit sometime this summer. Watch for details!
