Welcome to the HLAA-WI Website
Until this organization was founded in 1979 there was no voice or focus for people who are hard of hearing. HLAA changed that! HLAA has become known as 'The Voice for People with Hearing Loss'.

In spite or rainy weather, over 150 walkers showed up for the event. The best news is that Wisconsin Walk Teams raised nearly $50,000 this year. Donations are still being accepted on the Walk4Hearing website if you care to raise the bar! CONTRATULATIONS EVERYONE!
