Angel Faces’ mission is to encourage, inspire, empower and provide retreats and ongoing support to adolescent girls and young women who have experienced disfiguring trauma or burns. Our programs enhance self-esteem and social skills, while addressing the emotional and psychological healing process from traumatic injuries within a holistic framework of mind, body, and spirit.
The Level 1 retreat helps girls improve their self-image and increase self-confidence while embracing their trauma and related disfigurement. Group sessions lead by licensed psychologist focus on identifying trauma and loss issues, followed by methods to facilitate emotional healing through verbal expression, journaling, and art therapy. The program also provides professional instruction in facial design and includes massage therapy. The girls are introduced to a supportive community and develop bonding friendships out of their shared adversity, due to similar trauma. The 2017 program is being held June 18-24.
