Facing Maine Quilt Collaboration
Facing Maine collaborates with local quilters from the Linus Project to gift new members and children with a handmade quilt. It brings such comfort to them during their journey.
Please contact us for more information!
From prenatal and beyond, Facing Maine offers a private members-only online support network for parents and families, who are going through treatment for cleft or craniofacial condition, no one has to go through it alone!
Financial Award Program
We know many families in Maine have to travel great distances and often, from Bangor to Portland, for some, even to Boston, to receive the treatment and care their child needs.
Facing Maine can assist with sometimes costly travel expenses, gas, food, parking, and tolls.
We also provide assistance to help cover the cost of bills incurred for speciality treatment, (related to treatment of cleft and craniofacial conditions) that were not covered by insurance.
Facing Maine Youth Enrichment Grant
Children born with cleft and craniofacial differences must overcome many challenges, not the least of which is preparing for college or entering into the career world.
Facing Maine awards a grant to a Maine young adult aged 16-22 who has a cleft or craniofacial condition. This award can be used to help with college or technical school expenses, driver's ed, the cost of a car, attending a special camp, or other pursuits.
