The Mission of Hearing Loss Association of America SCC Chapter is to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing inclusive information, essential education, sensible support, and active advocacy.

The Sun City Center chapter is in its 13th year of service for the people of Sun City Center and is the Voice for People with Hearing Loss.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, our chapter has not been able to hold face-to-face meetings at St Andrew Presbyterian Church. We are currently offering the Zoom™ platform meetings by blending multiple FL Chapters so that more members/guests can participate in our monthly meetings. They are held every third Tuesday at 12:30 pm. Registration is required by emailing Debbe.Hagner@gmail.com or Text 727-271-0770

We are volunteers, giving out a valuable part of ourselves to help you learn what are the options, where you can go, and what you can do to live with better hearing. Find us at the local fairs, expos, and free community events. Stop by for free ear plugs, brochures and HLAA education. It will save your ears and brain.
