FACES: The National Craniofacial Association
FACES assists 75 to 135 families each year with travel away from home to specialized craniofacial medical centers for life-changing surgeries. In many cases, this is a lifelong journey for these families, as a child born with a severe craniofacial disorder often requires surgeries until young adulthood before their face and skull is completely rebuilt.

In addition to travel expenses and financial and moral support for surgery, FACES has helped over 25,000 individuals across the country with support networks, information packets and educational programs in the community.
