What is The H.E.A.R. Project?

Founded in 1999, the H.E.A.R. Project provides new hearing aids to Colorado children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and do not qualify for public or private funding. 

The H.E.A.R. Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, directed by a group of Colorado audiologists, parents of children with hearing loss, teachers of the hearing-impaired and community members.

Why is the H.E.A.R. Project so important to Colorado children with hearing loss?

When a family learns their child has a hearing loss they experience significant emotional and financial challenges. Hearing aids cost up to $6,000 per child and are often not covered by health insurance.  The H.E.A.R. Project’s goal is to ease the family’s financial burden and to assure that children receive the hearing care that they need to thrive developmentally, socially, and academically.
