Hearing Loss Association
The Mission of Hearing Loss Association of Kentuckiana (HLAK) is to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy.
Friendships, education, technology, advocacy and information for hard of hearing people are most important for us. Ease of communication in all settings makes it enjoyable. We are all ages and walks of life, but we share a concern for communication in a hearing world and find that it is possible.
