To provide the gift of a restored smile to men and women who have experienced incarceration or domestic violence and are committed to rebuilding their lives.
With that special gift of a smile comes confidence and renewed hope. Recipients are reunited with their children, gainfully employed, getting married and buying homes. They are building communities and reaching back to help others through a renewed purpose in life.
