What does a Pathfinder do?
First and foremost, Pathfinders assist individuals and families on a one-to-one basis. Pathfinders sometimes develop local/regional networks; often they speak to medical and other professionals (including cleft/craniofacial teams, nursing students, civic groups and more) about the needs of patients and families. However, our network was built one Pathfinder at a time, and personal, one-to-one assistance is always the focus of our efforts.
