Our Mission

Committed, Compassionate Care

The Survivors of Violence Foundation brings compassionate care and healing to survivors suffering from painful physical injuries or disfigurements caused by injury, violence or abuse. 

Providing reconstructive treatment accelerates both physical and emotional healing. This improves the quality of life for survivors, helping those with greatest financial and health care needs. 

The Foundation believes that surgical and therapeutic treatment can provide a healing touch to the soul that impacts the health and well being of people recovering from traumatic situations. 

Often people carry the physical scars of abuse and violence that become daily reminders of trauma which prevents a peaceful recovery. Healing treatments can make a difference in how quickly the survivors regain strength and self-esteem.

Who We Help

It is a privilege to bring healing to the lives of as many survivors as we can.

The Survivors of Violence Foundation has the privilege of helping men, women and children who have injuries, physical scars or non-healing wounds as a result of violent acts, abuse, injury or illness. 


Our Foundation treats people referred to us from other non-profit organizations, medical professionals and law enforcement agencies. These organizations refer victims to our center for care or contact Dr. Chernoff directly if emergency surgery is required. 


It is a privilege to bring healing to the lives of as many survivors as we can. We are very excited about the potential of helping people uncover their inner strength and beauty. We look forward to expanding treatments throughout the community.
