As a long-time ASHA member (and Fellow) and a Lion, I very much appreciated your comment about hearing aid help coming from your local Lions club (“Care for Everyone’s Ears,” July 31). Lions Clubs International has a program called AHAP, the affordable hearing aid program, which offers new aids sold at low cost. Here in the Northwest, there is a program called Audient, which is also a low-cost aid program sponsored by the Northwest Lions Foundation for Sight and Hearing. In many communities, local Lions have a hearing aid bank. In Spokane, we have one for the entire area, which is run by a Lion. It offers refurbished aids collected by Lions clubs and provided to the hearing aid bank. Some clubs charge for these aids; other don’t.
