The HearStrong Mission

To recognize the accomplishments of those who have overcome hearing loss.

The HearStrong Foundation aims to shatter social stigmas and radically challenge the general perception of hearing in our society. The foundation serves to celebrate individuals worldwide who have not only faced hearing loss, but conquered it with a determined spirit, a focused mind and an unwavering heart!

About HearStrong

The foundation was founded in 2013 with the goal of inspiring a mass hearing healthcare awareness movement in our country and beyond—a movement that could empower the 80% of people with untreated hearing loss to learn the truth about hearing devices and take control of their health.

The HearStrong Foundation is headquartered in Syracuse, NY.
