Our Mission

The Foundation for Faces of Children is dedicated to improving the lives of children with craniofacial differences, including cleft lip, cleft palate, and other head and facial differences. Our mission is to provide patients and families with the most accurate, up-to-date, and accessible information about facial differences, and to advocate for the best care possible for children with facial differences.

We achieve this by collaborating with leading specialists, endorsing the team approach to care and partnering with individuals and organizations with similar goals. We are a not-for-profit organization entirely supported by private donations, grants, and fund-raising initiatives.

2017 Paces for Faces a Huge Success

It was a hot, but beautiful day for the 21st annual Paces for Faces Walk and Family Picnic! Just over 445 participants braved the heat and took on the 3.5 mile walk around Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield. Almost $55,000 was raised through hard work and efforts of the walkers who solicited donations, and the many who participated in the raffle, silent auction, and merchandise sales the day of the walk. As always, these funds will be used to further FFC’s educational outreach through free publications, videos, informational programs, the Foundation’s website and the annual student scholarship awards.
