Full Recovery

Children’s Burn Foundation meets the needs of children and their families whose lives are dramatically altered by the tragedy of a childhood burn. Support includes life-transforming surgeries, specialized care, physical therapy, housing and transportation assistance, counseling, and opportunities for socialization with other survivors and their families. CBF's reach is local, national, and international and helped 4,182 children during 2018.

Medical Care

The Full Recovery Program provides medical care and other critically needed support services to those whose needs may not be covered by insurance or state services. The services provided include reconstructive surgery, physical therapy, pressure garments and face-masks, and prostheses.

Family Emergency Assistance

The trauma of a burn injury affects the entire family. Parents often must take time off from work to be with their children in the hospital and at home. For many, this can lead to financial crisis. The Foundation’s Family Emergency Assistance Program provides assistance to low income families to relieve financial stresses so that families can focus on their child’s recovery. This support includes transportation, emergency housing assistance, food vouchers, and other needs. To

Support Groups
Teen Support Group – Y.A.B.S.S.

Teen burn survivors find camaraderie in our program known by the acronym YABSS: Young Adult Burn Survivors & Supporters. YABSS support each teen's transition into adulthood, encouraging them to reach their full potential and embrace a bright and unlimited future.


Child & Family Support Groups

Child burn survivors, their siblings, and parents face unique challenges. Certified child life specialists and social workers guide these families in support groups designed specifically for them.  For more information, contact us.

Camps & Retreats

​Camp Gung Ho days are free, fun-filled adventures for young burn survivors and their siblings. Camp allows them to forget any stress, have fun, and just be kids. Camp Gung Ho activities have included fishing, swimming, art projects, surfing, and a day at Universal Studios. Family Camp is a four day weekend in a sports camp environment. Winter Retreat takes place between Christmas and New Years and provides a sense of community among burn survivors. 



Holiday Parties


Children’s Holiday Parties

We help support Halloween and Christmas parties at local Southern California hospitals ensuring that child burn survivors and their families have toys and fun for the holidays. This year, more than 400 child burn survivors and their families attended a special holiday party at Firehouse 84 in Los Angeles. Panda Express served Chinese food. Hasbro, JAKKS Pacific, and our Council Women made sure each child received a special holiday gift.  Children’s Burn Foundation Council women put on a fantastic event with Board members volunteering at game booths in a Willy Wonka themed, candy filled environment. For children still in the hospital, we bring the holidays to them.
