OUR MISSION is to support burn injured youth and their families in ways insurance companies and caretakers are unable to.  We've raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local burn units, launched our very own burn camp for kids, supported education and training for local doctors and nurses and provided financial support for burn survivors. It is with the support from local businesses, the community and individuals that we are able to continue to bring joy, relief & hope to children and their families.

We have PASSION for COMPASSION

We have wonderful partners at Hennepin County Medical Center Burn Center who are a combination of nurses, surgeons, occupational therapists, physical therapists, child life specialists and doctors. We work together to supply materials and equipment to alleviate stress for the child during dressing changes or before a surgery.

WHO WE ARE & HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

Firefighters for Healing is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 by Minneapolis firemen who tragically experienced firsthand what burn survivors endure. Our goal is to support burn survivors and their families in ways insurance companies and caretakers are unable to. With donor and community help, we are able to replace some of the essential living items when all has been lost in a fire, contribute financial assistance for corrective surgeries, support summer camp attendance for burn injured youth, donate to local hospital burn units and provide other resources and information as needed.
