The Adult Loss of Hearing Association (ALOHA) is a nonprofit community-based agency that provides advocacy, education and support to adults with hearing loss. The adults served typically were not deaf in their early years and acquired language, but lost hearing in later life due to illness, aging or environmental factors.
Adult Loss of Hearing Association Mission
The mission of Adult Loss of Hearing Association is to provide a support system for individuals with acquired deafness and/or hearing loss and their families ensuring their participation in the mainstream of life.
The Adult Loss of Hearing Association is a 501(c)(3) organization that funds their programs on donations and membership dues from members and businesses, in addition to grants and bequests. Fund raising events are held throughout the year in order to provide advocacy, education and support for adults residing in Southern Arizona communities.
The Adult Loss of Hearing Association (ALOHA) will participate in the Third Annual Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Arizona Walk4Hearing on November 3, 2018 in Mesa, Arizona. WE NEED YOU to join our ALOHA team at walk4hearing.org or support our team of walkers with a contribution!

GOOD NEWS!!! ALOHA has been certified by the State of Arizona as a Qualifying Charitable Organization, providing community-based support to Arizona residents who benefit from ALOHA’s assistance in meeting immediate basic needs. We are proud that our 34 years of working with individuals who are deaf or losing their ability to hear has garnered the State’s support. Arizona taxpayers who make donations to ALOHA are eligible for a dollar for dollar tax credit on their Arizona State Income Tax – up to $400.00 per year for individuals and $800.00 per year for couples filing joint income tax returns. Please help us celebrate our newly received recognition by considering a donation to ALOHA this year, before December 31. Help your community members say “ALOHA” to better hearing and designate some of your tax dollars to a charitable organization that works with thousands of Arizonans each year to improve their lives!
