There are numerous programs, information, and support for burn survivors and family members.
Burn Camp for Children
A special week designed for children who have survived a burn injury. Recovery from a burn is a life-long journey that requires dealing with many difficult physical, emotional, and psychological issues such as peer- and self-acceptance. Burn camp offers a safe, nurturing, and fun environment to share emotions and stories with other kids who have experienced similar injuries. Contact the Trauma Burn Center for more details on this free opportunity.
Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery (SOAR)
A no-cost program intended to assist past and present patients and their families in adapting to a burn injury through the support of others with similar experiences. Designed by the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors and a national committee of experts, the SOAR training program empowers volunteers with information and skills needed to provide appropriate forms of guidance to others.
Returning to Education and Continued Healing (REACH)
This school reintegration program provides information and tools necessary for parents, school personnel, and health professionals to positively support a child returning to their school and community after a serious illness or burn injury. This no-cost web-based tool features self-learning modules, video clips, testimonials, handouts and more. Additional program materials will be available by Spring 2015.
