ALDA Chicago

Hearing loss? We can help--

because we've been there.

ALDA Chicago is a group of people with various degrees of hearing loss. Some wear hearing aids or have cochlear implants, while others use neither.

Our mission is to provide support, education and camaraderie for adults with hearing loss.

Our motto, based on our members' dedication to communicating with each other and engaging with the world, is "whatever works."

On April 15, 2018, members and several guests attended an ALDA Chicago 30th Birthday Party celebration, which was held at the William Tell Restaurant in the Holiday Inn Chicago SW in Countryside, IL.  Everyone enjoyed great food from the "All American Buffet", raffle prizes, and a silent auction, which helped to raise money for ALDA Chicago, and also sent one lucky split-the-pot winner home with a smile!
