The Craniofacial Foundation of America (CFA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with facial deformities lead normal lives. Established in 1989, the CFA provides support for the Tennessee Craniofacial Center.
The foundation provides financial assistance for food, travel, and lodging expenses to qualified families traveling to the Tennessee Craniofacial Center for evaluation and treatment. It also provides networking opportunities for craniofacial patients and their families for the rights of those with facial disfigurement, and as a source for educational material on craniofacial anomalies.
FACES: The National Craniofacial Association is a non-profit organization serving children and adults throughout the United States with severe craniofacial deformities resulting from birth defects, injuries, or disease. There is never a charge for any service provided by FACES. Our service goals address three distinct areas: Client Travel, Public Awareness and Understanding, and Information and Support.
The National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction addresses the plight of children with a facial disfigurement by supporting state - of - the - art treatment, innovative research, psychosocial support and medical training that inspires a new generation of pediatric doctors.
