The Hear Now Café meets on the second Friday of every month. The café is open to all hard-of-hearing people, friends and families. People who want to learn how to deal with the struggle of hearing loss should attend. Meet others who are dealing with the same problems with hearing.
There is a great need for a Christian-based support group that reaches out to hard-of-hearing people. Hard-of-hearing people are searching for places to attend that are hearing accessible, including churches. The café’s mission is to help churches make simple adjustments to become hearing accessible.
The purpose of the Hear Now Café is also to build a strong caring Christian community, a network of loving support for the hard-of-hearing. The ramp for the hard-of-hearing is not built out of wood and steel, but a better method of communication called hearing accessibility.
