Organization Description

The SayWhatClub is an international nonprofit, tax-exempt organization run by volunteers with hearing loss. They offer peer-to-peer support to all people with hearing loss and deafness.

Mission Statement
SayWhatClub is dedicated to enhancing interpersonal communication for people who are hard of hearing, deafened, or have a serious interest in hearing loss, with goals of:

  1. Educating SWC participants and the public about all aspects of hearing loss;
  2. Providing for mutual sharing of coping and "life" skills;
  3. Reducing feelings of isolation, frustration and despair;
  4. Enhancing feeling of self-concept and optimism.

The primary medium for our mission is the Internet, which provides the opportunity for contacts over a wide geographic area; access 24 hours a day, seven days a week; and dissemination of information both to SWC participants and to the general public.

In addition, SayWhatClub encourages face to face contact its participants through informal local gatherings, and periodic [annual] conventions designed both to provide social contact and educational workshops dealing with hearing loss issues.
