Information, Education, Support and Advocacy

The Mission of HLAA and HLAA Tampa Chapter is to open the world of communication for over 256,000 people with hearing loss in Hillsborough County through information, education, advocacy and support. We aim to provide the most up to date information our industry has to offer right here at our Tampa location (see our Mission Statement).
