About Us


The Adult Loss of Hearing Association was founded in 1984 by Gloria Baral, a former teacher who lost her hearing as an adult. Her own experiences with hearing loss and the need for support, prompted her to establish ALOHA as a peer support group. With the help of long time volunteer, Loretta Butler over the years, ALOHA has grown into an agency that offers support, advocacy, training, information and education to adults with hearing loss, helping them to improve the quality of their lives.

The ALOHA Board of Directors would like to thank our 2020 donors. Without the generosity of our members and supporters, we would be unable to provide the service and support to Southern Arizonans living with hearing loss.
