Grantee Update: Psi Iota Xi

Hearing is vital to daily living. It helps us communicate basic needs and reduces social isolation. Studies have shown that a hearing difficulty can even lead to dementia in senior citizens. Since Medicare and Medicaid do not normally cover hearing aids (or only pay for one per person) hearing impairments affect low-income seniors greatly.


Psi Iota Xi is a philanthropic sisterhood that supports the arts, hearing, speech, and literacy projects in the Rush County community. In the fall of 2022 they received a $13,973.53 grant from the Helen and Jim Ewing Fund to assist eight low-income seniors with fitting them and purchasing hearing aids through Audiology Associates in Rushville. This is the kind impact we love hearing about!
