The Children's Hearing Aid Fund

The Children's Hearing Aid Fund (CHAF) raises money to provide hearing aids and hearing aid services to children and families who need support. For a child with hearing loss, appropriate hearing technology can provide access to speech and language, higher self-esteem, better academic performance and increased safety and independence among many other benefits. Unfortunately, most insurance plans do not give many benefits for hearing aids for children. As children grow, often times their technology must be adjusted to meet changes in their anatomy, hearing abilities and specific needs. Throughout the course of their childhood, these costs can add up. 

CHAF will provide hearing aids and hearing aid services to children with hearing loss and their families, at little or no cost, who may not have any other option. Your donation would help these children reach their maximum potential! Thank you!
