FACE TO FACE: The National Domestic Violence Project

The National Domestic Violence Project offers individuals who have been affected by domestic violence the hope of wholeness by treating the facial injuries.

AAFPRS members volunteer to help victims of domestic abuse who cannot afford to receive treatment for facial injuries. These efforts repair both physical and psychological scars and help individuals to regain self-esteem and begin to rebuild their lives.

Faces In Our Midst 

The AAFPRS Foundation is the first surgical group (1994) to take a firm stand and become involved in assisting individuals of domestic violence break the cycle of violence, enhance their self-esteem and rebuild their lives. Many victims of domestic violence receive facial injuries and are not financially able to have these injuries adequately repaired. We offer consultation and surgery, pro-bono, to eligible individuals through FACE TO FACE: The National Domestic Violence Project.

We developed a partnership with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), which is the umbrella group for the majority of shelters in this country. In addition, the American Medical Association has enthusiastically endorsed our program.

The AAFPRS is a leader in the medical field by helping empower individuals who have been physically abused. The problem of domestic violence is vast. Every day, the AAFPRS works hand-in-hand with the shelters making sure that the individual is helped emotionally, then physically – hopefully, eliminating the painful memories of the abuse. Healing must occur within before any procedures can take place.
