Whittier Hearing Angel Foundation
Our mission is to provide the Gift of Hearing to those in our community who cannot afford hearing aids. Hearing is an essential part of the human experience. When we cannot hear we cannot be part of the conversation; we cannot hear the music playing; we cannot hear our grandchildren laughing; we cannot hear the teacher in our classroom. It is not right that so many should suffer with hearing loss and not get treatment.
The Whittier Hearing Angel Foundation is dedicated to helping all of our neighbors start hearing again by fitting them with hearing aids.

The First Gift of Hearing Mission was held on October 26, 2019. At that event, we were joined by many volunteers from the community and helped over 35 people to start hearing again. There were many hugs, many smiles, and many tears! We fit all ages from children to seniors and all were thrilled to get their new digital hearing aids. In addition to the hearing aids, we were joined by the California Telephone Access Program and CapTel. They provided free amplified phones or captioned phones to those who needed them. It was an amazing event with many lives changed for the better! We also fit another 10 people in our office. These were children or those with vision or memory problems that could not be properly fit at the actual event on the 26th.
The Second Gift of Hearing Mission event was held in our office on February 29, 2020. At this event, we were able to fit another 15 people with sets of digital hearing aids. These people also were provided free telephones by the CTAP program. We had another 5 people scheduled in our office over the following 2 weeks to get their hearing aids. These were people who were ill or who could not be fit on the event day. Again there were hugs, and tears, and joy throughout the building.
