The Cleft Palate Foundation
Founded in 1973, the Cleft Palate Foundation's (CPF) mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families affected by facial birth defects. The Cleftline is our 24/7 telephone and online brief counseling and support service, referring families to cleft/craniofacial treatment teams, feeding support, state and advocacy resources. Our collection of more than 30 publications and the Feeding Your Baby video are our primary education resources, many of which are available in English and Spanish. Research funding, college scholarships, our bi-annual Connections Conference for families, and our Cleftline teddy bears are other major activities of CPF.
