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:

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

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.
