Our Charitable Mission

AUDIENT is a national nonprofit hearing care alliance bringing together hearing health care professionals, suppliers, and related groups with the common goal of providing access to quality hearing aids and related care for low income hearing impaired people.

SightLife™, formerly the Northwest Lions Foundation (NLF), designed and developed the AUDIENT Alliance after many years experience of coordinating the activities of the Lions hearing aid recycling program for the Pacific Northwest. A committee of nationally recognized hearing care professionals advised the NLF during the development stage. SightLife is a not for profit 501(c)(3).

AUDIENT is encouraging the accessibility of hearing care through a network of dedicated hearing health care providers in the USA. AUDIENT sees that each income qualified applicant is referred to a hearing care professional in their community who is dedicated to supporting those in need of quality hearing care. AUDIENT serves as a third party administrator by performing the income qualification, collecting the funds from the patient as agent of the provider.
