Paying it forward in the city of “Brotherly Love”
Philly Phaces is a grass roots, all volunteer, nonprofit organization for children with congenital facial abnormality.
Who We Are
We are a loving and knowledgeable community of Volunteers made up of parents, health professionals, and young adults with Congenital Facial Abnormalities. We are all intimately impacted by the life-changing work being performed everyday by the surgical and mental health professionals in the Philadelphia area. We are dedicated and passionate about bringing to bear our experiences and resources to help children and their families navigate the medical, social, and psychological issues associated with appearance differences.
“Kindness is giving hope to those who think they are all alone in this world.”
EVERY HEART HAS A STORY
Why It Matters
When a child is born with a congenital facial abnormality, parents experience a tidal wave of emotions and questions. Will my child be healthy? What social obstacles will he or she face? How will they be impacted emotionally? How do we even begin to educate ourselves on which surgeries, doctors, and therapies will be required? Who can we turn to for guidance?
Philly Phaces provides a community of support and answers to these monumental questions and concerns. We understand how much it matters to have access to these resources to ensure all of our children experience the best that life has to offer.
