UMN Lions Infant Hearing Device Loaner Program

Our Mission

We provide loaner hearing devices for children (age 0 to 18 years) in Minnesota. These short-term loans give families time to decide and secure funds to purchase their own hearing devices or wait for medical interventions. A typical loan period is 6 months. We’ve helped over 800 Minnesota children to date!
