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."

Chicago Walk4Hearing team is forming now

ALDA Chicago will be joining HLAA again this year in the Chicago Walk4Hearing in Lincoln Park. This is our 5th year joining the walk and our goal is to reach $2000. Each team member will set their own goal and we need people to join our ALDA Chicago team to make that happen!

You can invite family and friends to join the walk and/or make a donation to ALDA Chicago. Of course we need to meet our goal at 100% so please let everyone know about our fundraising efforts. And remember every donation counts!

Learn more about this event.

Donna Punzio will be our ALDA Chicago Team Captain. You can contact her at
