Phoenix Kids + Teens

At any age, a burn injury deeply affects the individual survivor as well their friends and family. Kids and teens facing the unexpected trauma of a burn injury need special attention as they get back to living. Everyday interaction with classmates, participation in extracurricular activities, and plans for their future may feel more challenging after a burn injury… and they may be unsure of how to ask questions or where to turn for help.

That’s why Phoenix Society has designed a series of programs and resources for kid and teen survivors, siblings of survivors, children of adult survivors, and their communities.
