ACPA and the Cleft Palate Foundation (CPF) merged in 2017 to better achieve their common mission: to optimize outcomes for individuals with oral cleft and craniofacial conditions through education, support, research, advocacy and interdisciplinary team care. Professionals and families are now working more closely together to build cleft and craniofacial awareness and improve care.
After the merger, CPF’s patient and family programs have continued under the ACPA Family Services program. ACPA Family Services is dedicated to providing comprehensive resources and individualized support. Education is the center of ACPA Family Services, and family-centered team care is the goal for every patient.
Cleftline.org continues to be the online resource for patients and families, with downloadable publications, ACPA Approved Team listings and more. When more specific questions arise, ACPA Family Services staff can be reached at 800-24-CLEFT or firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested individuals can also engage with ACPA Family Services on Facebook and Twitter.
