AFTR is innovative, genuine, creative, and effective in journeying with, celebrating the dignity of, and giving voice to the typically underprivileged, under-served, voiceless, and/or unrecognized. This organization is an agent of change in the direct lives of people and uses the simple yet open-ended tool of photography to do it.

AFTR gives dignity to those ignored and hurt by society by allowing them to share their feelings and world. We are enlightened about their needs and moved to help more. It's a unique framework for connecting at-risk youth and adults with those able to help.

AFTR's work is about touching individual people and about changing the way all of us see each other. I have been watching it from a distance and seeing the photographs made by the programs' participants - all of whom are socially invisible in their communities - changes the way I look at the people near me. Who am I not seeing? How does the world look to them? AFTR has the power to effect profound change by challenging how all of us think.

I have read many reviews of many non-profits, and what I look for before donating to one is integrity. Will they use my money the way they say they will?

I can assure you, A Face to Reframe will.

As a personal friend of Beth Bruno, the founder of A Face to Reframe, I am convinced of her passion and self-sacrifice to enable a voice for the voiceless, and a perspective from those who have been silenced.

There is nothing that gives hope to the soul like being listened to. Putting a camera in someone's hand gives them a voice. A Face to Reframe listens and amplifies.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

viewing the finished on-line displays and reading the thoughts of those who took the photos.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
