Our Mission

The Foundation for Faces of Children is dedicated to improving the lives of children with cranial and facial differences, including cleft lip and cleft palate. 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.  Our programming provides networking opportunities for parents and children for mutual support.

We pursue our mission 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.
