As the only national organization with a primary focus of helping burn survivors everywhere get back to living, our advocacy relates to three areas:
Burn Aftercare and Access to Support
Increasing access to quality burn care and resources to assist the whole family's healing from burn trauma
We work with the burn care medical community to understand the need for long-term burn care and to expand access to recovery programs such as peer support, educational materials, and community reentry resources.
Working to decrease the number of burn injuries
Our advocacy efforts are focused on preventing burn injuries and death through code adoptions and legislative initiatives that make our communities safer. By adding the voice of those who truly understand the impact of burns on the community, we are helping to make permanent change.

Quality of Life
Advancing research and program development focused on interventions that improve long-term quality of life
Our community is actively participating in research studies focused on interventions that support and enhance quality of life for those living with a burn injury in the family. Read more about our research participation efforts in our blog.
