HLAA – Palm Beach County Chapter

The Palm Beach County Chapter of the HLAA is a non-profit, non-sectarian educational organization devoted to the welfare and interests of those who are hearing impaired and committed to participating fully in the hearing world.

Our Mission:  To support and empower people with all degrees of hearing loss — to help them understand their challenges and develop strategies to be safe and to thrive.

Together, we can make hearing loss visible! Friends, relatives, employers, medical professionals and business owners are always welcome at chapter meetings. The point of meeting? To socialize, share tips and ask questions of people who have similar experiences.

Monthly chapter meetings are held at 10:15 am on the first Saturday of each month, October through May, at Boynton Beach City Hall. Click here for 2022-23 Schedule (PDF)

Saturday, December 3rd is our our next meeting date. Please join us at 10:15 a.m. in the beautiful new City Hall in Boynton Beach. Our meeting room is fully looped so be ready to “activate” your telecoils!
