Havana Nights 2016 Gala was a fundraising event like I've never seen. From the gorgeous event space (Vibiana DTLA) to the touching program with powerful speakers, Face Forward is really changing the world. Congratulations to Deborah Alessi and the amazing Face Forward team!

Dark Tide Productions, LLC of Los Angeles California could not be more enthusiastic about working with Face Forward. This 501(c)(3) non-profit works with community leaders and organizations around the nation and throughout the world, in order to identify victims of violence and human trafficking who are working toward recovery and who carry the physical evidence of past abuse day in and day out; they have provided over $750,000 pro bono treatments.

Deb and Mandi always go above and beyond for both their patients and team! This organization is absolutely doing their part to change the world.

When I first heard about Face Forward, I couldn't believe the trama these women have gone through and survived to tell their story. People here are so compassionate, supportive, and caring. Face Forward helps them achieve their desired image little by little through plastic reconstructive surgery. This goes beyond what they had to live with, please give and support to better the lives of our survivors. God bless

I never mind volunteering for Face Forward. They've helped my family and I see the way they help other victims from all over the world.

This review comes from watching my little sister go through something nobody ever should. There is no one who would've helped my sister the way Face Forward has. Both physically and mentally helping prepare her to move on and encouraging her to go back to school. She was afraid of people seeing her scars and judging. This winter she went back to school and although it is difficult she continues to try. Helping victims of violent crime is what they do and they're great at it. They didn't just help my sister they helped out whole family. Thank you Deborah.

This is one of those vital organizations that works tirelessly to help violently abused people. Domestic abuse issues are finally finding a voice and Face Forward is shouting the loudest to bring awareness to their cause.
