Angel Faces, a California-based nonprofit, is planning its 13th annual retreat for adolescent girls and young women with severe burn and trauma injuries. These retreats, well respected in the burn community for the transformative affect they have on their participants, are part of a year-round support program that helps disfigured girls and young women overcome psycho-social challenges (such as low self-esteem and social anxiety) and reach their optimum potential.

We are in the midst of a campaign to get the word out about our retreats, which are held in New Hampshire. Retreat costs are underwritten by donors and corporate sponsors, so we don’t have to charge the girls to attend. Applications are available for download at our website,
