Services Provided: The Albuquerque Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America formerly Self Help for Hard of Hearing People-SHHH was founded in 1985 to provide outreach to those who do not hear well. We are a non-profit support group that believes hard of hearing people can help one another, be helped, and can participate successfully in society. Our primary purpose is to educate ourselves, those close to us, and the general public about the causes, nature and complications of hearing loss and what we can do for ourselves and others to cope with that loss. The Hearing Loss Association of Albuquerque holds regular meetings at which we may have a guest speaker on a topic of interest to our members. Sometimes we have meetings where we share our experiences and knowledge about coping.Educational meetings held 3rd Saturday of the month from Sept thru June with speakers presenting of topics of interest to the hard of hearing and those close to them. Group leaders also advocate for the needs and concerns of the hard of hearing with government agencies etc.
