Our mission is to empower children, adults, and families living with facial differences in the Philadelphia area, providing peer support, advocacy, and resources.
Who we are
We are an organization providing peer mentorship for families, children, and young adults with facial differences. We host group events and school outreach programs, provide one-on-one peer support, as well as related services to help children with craniofacial abnormalities, cleft lips, and cleft palates. We are volunteers made up of parents, health professionals, and young adults with facial differences.
Why it matters
When a child is first born with a facial difference, his or her parents experience a tidal wave of emotions. Will my child be healthy? What social obstacles will he or she face? What resources are available to me? How do we begin to educate ourselves?
No one knows the answers better than the parents and children who have been through the process. We are those parents and children.
