Listen Up! Project



Every year countless Kentuckians deal with the problems associated with hearing loss and are unable to financially afford the proper care needed to live a normal life. To help fill this void, The Listen Up! Project is creating an opportunity for you or a loved one to volunteer at one of the Heuser Hearing Institute’s charitable foundations partners around Louisville in exchange for credit towards hearing aids. This pilot program has been made possible by a generous donation from Delta Dental of Kentucky’s Making Smiles Happen program.
