The Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors is the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury. For more than 30 years we have worked with survivors, families, healthcare professionals, burn centers, the fire industry, and our donors to support burn recovery, improve the quality of burn care, and prevent burn injury. We are a community committed to the vision of ensuring that every burn survivor and their loved ones have the necessary support and resources on the road to recovery. Our promise is simple but powerful: you are not alone. You can get back to living. We can help, with caring people to share the journey and resources to make it easier. The Phoenix Society’s name comes from the legendary bird that is consumed by flame, but rises again more brilliant than it was before.
