It has been said that because someone invented a wheel, we drive cars. Rocky Stone, SHHH/HLAA founder, lost his hearing. He began a search to deal with living with hearing loss. He invited friends into his home to discuss their efforts and feelings. Then, in 1979, he incorporated Self-Help for Hard of Hearing People, SHHH (the wheel). Since that time, the organization has grown to an international entity with a worldwide impact. In the United States, we are 14 state organizations and 200 chapters (the car). He lost his hearing, and we learn to ask what others are doing to cope, share strategies and support each other through programs and social activities. HLAA-KY Home was chartered in Bardstown, KY in August 2009. Our HLAA-Kentuckiana Chapter was Chartered in 1988.
