We are Firefighters for Healing


We Fight for the Child

They alone face the pain, frustration and challenges that their injuries bring them. Firefighters for Healing knows firsthand what each of these brave young people are faced with. We give our time, attention and energy to serve immediate needs – needs not met by others. We show up with compassion, understanding and the ability to take action.

We Fight for the Family

The family of the burn-injured child faces the staggering prospect of immense investments of time, money and emotion – as they support their child. Firefighters for Healing comes to the aid of these families with the flexibility to support immediate family needs, whatever those needs may be. Our goal is to provide families with support and services they cannot receive from other sources.

We Fight for the Firefighter

Firefighters are often first on scene at the time of burn or trauma and are instrumental in providing life-saving help. Their unwavering bravery deserves our attention and support and we are here for them in their time of need. We provide housing to any Firefighter (and their family) while they are being cared for in the Twin Cities for any reason.
