We believe so passionately in the power of community that we have implemented a Circle of Giving model into our patient care that puts our mission into action.
As a nonprofit, people often assume that we are a "Free" hearing clinic. While we offer free hearing screenings for general prevention and awareness for the community, we do not offer full audiology services or hearing aids for free.
We reduce our fees and then utilize a sliding scale fee system to further reduce costs for those with even lower income than others which makes our hearing aids and services affordable for everyone.
We've taken it one step further.
We rely on donations, grants, volunteers, and other means of support to provide services and treatment for our patients. In exchange for this generous public support, patients who qualify financially and are in need of hearing devices sign a VOLUNTEER COMMITTMENT form to give back their time and talents to others. They commit to completing a specified number of service hours within their community for either other public agencies, nonprofit organizations, churches, or schools as a way to "give back" to the community that is providing them with the Gift of Hearing.
This is our way of saying "Thank You" to our community for making it possible for our patients to receive the Gift of Hearing. Our Circle of Giving puts our motto into action!
