There are many ways that you can help us complete our work in providing hearing healthcare to low-income children and adults in Northern California and beyond.
You can help give the Gift of Hearing! Here are different ways to help Pacific Hearing Connection directly by volunteering your time and expertise. Don't see your preferred activity? Make a suggestion on our volunteer sign up!
Drive patients to and from appointments
Many of our patients have limited or no reliable transportation, making it difficult to keep appointments and receive service. If you live in Santa Clara or San Mateo County, and would be willing to drive patients to and from our office in Los Altos a few times per month, please let us know!
Interpret at appointments/translate forms for non-English speaking patients
We have a significant number of patients with limited English speaking capabilities, making communication, testing, education, or even just scheduling a challenge. We are currently most in need of Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, and Russian interpreters, but other languages are welcome as we are always looking to increase accessibility to our services.
As a nonprofit serving low-income individuals, we have limited resources. We rely on donations, grants, volunteers, and other sources of income to be sustainable. If you have experience with crowdfunding or applying for grants, have connections to corporate foundations or donation matching programs, or are just willing to make phone or direct mail requests on behalf of Pacific Hearing Connection, please let us know!
Spread the word
You know your community best – is there a church group looking for a volunteer speaker? Community center bulletin board that could display an informational poster? Doctor’s office where brochures would be helpful? Online community that could be linked to Pacific Hearing Connection? Help us spread the word by distributing literature, posting on social media, and telling your family and friends about our mission and services!
