NCADV's Cosmetic & Reconstructive Support Program (CRS™) was created to connect survivors of domestic violence to medical providers around the country. Pro bono services may be available to those in need of a provider to repair injuries inflicted by an abusive spouse or partner.
Currently, NCADV assists survivors with the application process to assure all qualifications have been met and to provide support while working diligently with several medical groups and individual providers to streamline the process. Listed below are three of the most notable provider partner groups.
Reconstructing Hope is a NYC based best-in-class non-profit charity that provides FREE cosmetic and reconstructive medical care; including plastic surgery, to survivors of domestic violence. They offer free services to survivors of domestic violence who cannot afford the cosmetic surgery, dental surgery, laser tattoo removal surgery, reconstructive surgery or medical attention needed to repair the injuries they have received from a spouse or intimate partner. They volunteer our services to assist survivors in removing the physical scars of abuse.
FACE TO FACE: The National Domestic Violence Project (FACE TO FACE)
FACE-TO-FACE is a program started in 1994 by the Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). The FACE-TO-FACE program offers facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to domestic violence survivors to repair injuries on the face, head, and neck.
Face Forward is a non-profit organization registered in California that works with community leaders and organizations around the nation and throughout the world in order to identify victims of violence who are working toward recovery and who carry the physical evidence of past abuse.
