I have been working with AHH since it began. I have been active in collecting salvage and turning it into cash to help fund the needs. Several of the donars utilize the charity for those folks that fall between the cracks and really need the gift of hearing. That is what they do, give folks a chance to better thier social, family and carrier life by being able to hear and communicate.

Alison's Hope For Hearing is a wonderful organization! Not only is it run entirely by volunteers, the organization provides hearing aids to men, women and children across the country who cannot afford hearing aids on their own. There are other organizations who provide hearing aids, but none of them do it without being self serving in some way. I am proud to work with Alison's Hope as well as recommend them to other Audiologists across the country, so that they can spread the word to their low income patients who need hearing aids, but can't otherwise afford them.

Hearing loss can be extremely challenging for people to cope with, especially if they cannot afford hearing amplification necessary to converse with their loved ones. As of year end 2013 Alison's Hope for Hearing had done 126 fittings since inception, and participated in a programs that provided hearing aids as part of mission trips and to hospice patients. I am lucky to be part of such an amazing organization doing so much for those in need!

As Alison's younger sister, I really know her passion for helping those with hearing loss. In her honor, we have been able to help over 100 people gain access to top quality audiology services and high quality hearing aids for free. In 2013, almost 90 cents of every dollar went directly to providing hearing aids to those who would not have access otherwise. Any contribution helps and will go directly to those in need. We would greatly appreciate your support!

This organization was founded in honor of Alison Berry, who had a tremendous heart for audiology and for helping others. She was a colleague, co-worker, and dear friend, and I am so humbled to honor her life in providing assistance to those who otherwise would not be able to afford it. We live in difficult times; many states are cutting back on hearing assistance for their most needy citizens and the impact of hearing loss goes simply beyond just a sensory impairment. Hearing loss truly cuts off the affected individual from daily activity and from other people. With Alison's Hope, we are able to not only help in restoring communication for these individuals, but do so in a manner that brings them dignity and also creates a great partnership with their clinician. We are rather unique in that we work with multiple manufacturers of hearing aids, thus providing clients with the best possible product for their needs. As an organization we seek to provide the best possible care in the best needs of the individual client, a belief that I know Alison would fully expect of us.

Alison's Hope for Hearing was created after a tragedy, yet so much good has come from it. Giving the gift of hearing to those who could never afford it is a life-changing experience, bettering lives. Alison had a passion and her wonderful family saw to it that her passion was used to make a difference in honor of her. Alison's Hope for Hearing deserves this grant opportunity from Chase Bank so it can go on changing lives.

As Alison's mother-in-law, I loved listening to her talk about helping people hear better. She had a passion for helping the hearing impaired! This foundation, created in Alison's memory, is a legacy to her and her passion. She would be so proud to know that she was the inspiration for this foundation and would have been thrilled beyond belief to know that personal donations for this foundation help those who really need it on an on-going basis. Please consider "Alisons Hope for Hearing" to be the recipient of such a wonderful donation as the "Chase" donation.

As Alison's sister-in-law, I know how much this organization would mean to her. I hope that this organization can continue to grow and help those in need receive the gift of hearing. What an amazing woman Alison was and how wonderful it is that she can continue to touch the lives of others.
