Empowering Young Individuals

Helping hard-of-hearing youth grow through education, advocacy, and modern technology

Our Initiatives

At the Hard of Hearing Young People Foundation (HOHYPF), our dedication to helping hard-of-hearing youth is strong as we move into the new year and beyond. Our efforts go beyond just providing support and hearing aids; we strive to ensure that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, has access to the latest technological developments. We believe everyone deserves to experience the world in its full richness, both visually and audibly.

Bridging Gaps

We aim to enhance awareness and education, helping to close the communication gap between the hearing and non-hearing communities. In the United States, 3 out of every 1,000 children are born with significant hearing loss, often into families with no hearing issues. Despite the technology available, only a small number of those who could benefit from hearing aids have access to them. Our objective is to improve these statistics starting now.

Overcoming Barriers

Young people with hearing loss, especially from less advantaged backgrounds, face serious challenges. Limited access to healthcare and hearing devices can severely affect their language development and overall quality of life. Our foundation is dedicated to overcoming these obstacles, empowering these young individuals, and educating the wider community.

Education

We provide educational materials like e-books, articles, and customized programs specifically designed for HOH youth.

Awareness Campaigns

Our campaigns aim to increase public understanding and empathy towards hearing impairments, encouraging a more inclusive society.

Hearing Aid Distribution

We manage the collection, refurbishment, and distribution of hearing aids to those in need, ensuring technology fulfills its purpose.

Community Support

We are building a network of support for hard-of-hearing individuals and their families, providing guidance, counseling, and assistance.

Research and Advocacy

We are involved in research to promote effective policy changes and advocate vigorously for the rights and needs of the hard-of-hearing community.

Technology Access

We ensure that the latest hearing technology is available to all, regardless of their financial background, to enhance their quality of life.

In true Moz-style lingo, we've got a duo of remarkable youths making waves. Mask-clad and armed with potentially transformative boxes, these audacious trailblazers are hell-bent on igniting empowerment. Their target audience: the oft-overlooked, yet surprisingly powerful cadre of hard-of-hearing peers. These entrepreneurial firebrands aren't just joining the ranks - they're redefining them. Let's retune our perspectives to their new frequency and throw a supportive nod their way!
