The Arizona Burn Foundation (ABF) exists to improve the quality of life of burn survivors and their families while promoting burn prevention advocacy and education in Arizona. Serving the Arizona community since 1967, ABF provides survivor support programs that help children and adults cope with the devastating psychological and physical effects of their injuries. They assist burn survivors and their families from crisis to recovery to a life of thriving, one day at a time. All ABF services are provided free of charge.
ABF’s H.O.P.E. Services (Helping Others, Promoting Empowerment), encompasses all of the services and programs provided to burn survivors and their families. This includes:
Crisis – lodging, transportation, meal vouchers, medical cost assistance, and emotional support
Recovery – peer support group, limited financial assistance, camps, retreats, and physical, occupational, and psychological therapy support
Thrive – leadership development, conferences, opportunities to give back to the community, and social gatherings
“When we address the needs of burn survivors and their families before a financial and emotional crisis is amplified, we support recovery and resiliency. Each time we provide support, we assist the family with a plan for continued success beyond our services,” says Lori Janik, Director of Client Care Services at ABF.
Arizona Burn Foundation is happy to have the support of Thunderbirds Charities to help provide support for burn survivors and their families.
