The Courageous Faces Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those living with rare and severe medical conditions through personalized, direct and ongoing support.
“The Courageous Faces Foundation and the work they do moves me greatly. The incredible impact they are having, the lives they touch, and the happiness they bring are truly amazing. I have spent many years working with other foundations and individuals with special needs and what the Courageous Faces Foundation is doing goes beyond anything I have ever experienced.”
“I have been in the clothing business for 29 years and have participated in many charities. I have never seen a charity where you can actually see where your money has been spent and the difference it is making. This is a quality of life foundation that is different than anything we have ever experienced here in Boston. This is a charity like no other. My life has changed to where the small things just don’t bother me anymore. I have never asked anyone to donate to any charity I have been involved with until now. I am really proud to be associated with this foundation.”
“You’ve organized my life’s ambitions and goals so much! You’ve strengthened my platform as an individual in society, you inspired and cultivated me to be so much more confident than I thought I could be. We’ve shared laughs together, inside jokes etc. Your’re the greatest people I’ve met in my life, and that’s the truth. In just these two years my life has been impacted with unimaginable amounts of joy and hope for a positive future. Your foundation and everyone in it is making this world a better place little by little. I’m beyond blessed to be a part of your lives. I look up to all of you so much.”
” I have been given amazing experiences and opportunities through the Courageous Faces Foundation. I love that they help teach that people with medical differences are just like anyone else and help us live our best lives possible.”
Faces of the Foundation
Our "Faces of the Foundation" are the heart and soul of what we are all about. We are hoping to expand the number of people we serve to 40, an additional seven from our current number. Our "Champions" as we often call them, inspire us to do the work we do as we enhance the quality of their lives. Our work is very individualized and specific to the needs of each person and their family. Once a part of the Foundation, we are with them through their life's journey, providing needed supports in a variety of areas. As expected, our support and work looks very different based on an individuals medical condition, their age, their family needs and more! CFF has transformed the lives of many by providing custom clothing, home adaptations, individualized access to their community through transportation resources, medical equipment to increase independence, support to continuing education , technology to enhance educational opportunities, recreational activities, vocational and career training, professional development including conferences and events related to their medical conditions, self-advocacy, mental health support and much more! We advocate and teach self-advocacy to help build inclusive communities for each of our champions and train them to be the best that they can be, to be proud of their differences while living a fulfilling and meaningful life.
Each of our "Faces/Champions" are our beneficiaries through our ongoing individualized and direct support, including the family members who share their journey's each day.
We have an abundant of success that goes with the work we do at Courageous Faces Foundation. Some of the highlights include:
Reggie, a gentleman that has a severe genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis (NF). Due to the large tumor on his lower he used to spend 25 minutes a day hand sewing his pant leg together, just to get dressed. Thanks to generous donations, CFF had an entire custom wardrobe made for Reggie so he could be proud to get out of his home.
After surviving a fire at the age of 4, Johnny was given new prosthetic ears. Your contributions allowed retired CIA Disguise Specialist, Robert Barron, to create custom ears for this passionate, inspiring courageous young man.
Independence for Maddie! A wheelchair Platform Lift and new roll-in shower was installed to give her freedom and security in her home, improving the quality of her life!
Acting classes for Zahra, who is hoping to expand her career in acting in addition to providing support with her transportation to and from the classes, all while expanding her community involvement.
Major home renovations for KJ and his family to ensure the healthiest home environment possible to offset major medical complications from his condition.
