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.

​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.

Children’s Holiday Parties

We help support Halloween and Christmas parties at

local Southern California hospitals to ensure that

child burn survivors and their families

have fun for the holidays.


This year, more than 400 child burn survivors

and their families attended a special

Willy Wonka themed party at

Fire Station 84 in Woodland Hills.

Thank you to Panda Express, Hasbro,

JAKKS Pacific, Brian Murphy,

and our Council Women for their generosity.


Children’s Burn Foundation Council women

put on this fantastic event with assistance

from Board members, staff,

and other outstanding volunteers.

For children still in the hospital,

we bring the holidays to them.
