Consider participating in one of our three virtual meetings.
1) Peer Discussion Group Meetings @ 1:00 pm every Tuesday.
2) Book Discussion Group Meetings @ 1:00 pm every Wednesday
(currently discussion Volume Control by David Owen)

We are conducting these one-hour meetings using the Zoom platform and the Peer Discussion and Book Discussion meetings are captioned by the
Relay Conference Captioning service.
If you would like an invitation to any of the meetings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to participate in a demonstration meeting, we will arrange for a one-on-one session with you.
Here are a few of the many positive comments from our virtual meeting participants:
" We were...impressed with how well-lit everyone was; the images were really good."
" The meeting is relaxed enough that if you have questions about using ZOOM or moving your laptop for positioning, you can feel free to ask."
To date, The Adult Loss of Hearing Association has received over $21,000 from people all over Arizona who contributed to ALOHA's Giving Thanks Fundraiser and who chose our unique non-profit as the beneficiary of their Arizona Qualifying Tax Credit donation. The ALOHA Board, its staff and volunteers are truly overwhelmed by the generosity of individuals and families who contributed so open heartedly during this tax season.
We assure you, these resources are an essential part of our operating budget. This major source of income goes primarily to cover the cost of staffing - the only way to keep our doors open and serving nearly 2,000 visitors annually. It also allows us to carry on our community-based programs such as tracking area looped facilities and helping those organizations (churches, theaters, public libraries, etc.) ensure their hard of hearing patrons can take full advantage of their offerings.
So, from our grateful hearts to your kind and open hearts, thank you. We will be here for you!
Your support and contributions will enable ALOHA to continue advocating for adults suffering from hearing loss and provide education and support for the hard of hearing in Southern Arizona

The Adult Loss of Hearing Association Board of Directors would like to thank our April 2020 donors. Without the generosity of our members and supporters, we would be unable to provide the service and support to Southern Arizonans suffering from hearing loss.
