Firefighters for Healing
Transitional Care Center
When a tragedy strikes families often jump in the car, ambulance or helicopter without any thought about what to bring, where they will stay or how long they will be there. Unfortunately in many cases they soon find out they will be here for weeks if not months and even more often they will need to continuously return to the cities for ongoing treatment and care.
Over the past five years Firefighters for Healing has worked with community partners to provide hotel accommodations for burn survivors and their families. While this is a good solution, in some long term cases, it is not a home away from home that helps aide in a patient’s recovery.
Firefighters for Healing hopes to support the community in 3 ways:
- Provide accommodations for the FAMILIES/relatives of survivors traveling from a distance so they have a comfortable and familiar place to stay
- Provide accommodations for SURVIVORS so they are close to the outpatient services to support their transition into their new normal level of activity/mobility before heading home
- Provide accommodations for any FIREFIGHTER from anywhere in the state of Minnesota who is receiving care in the Twin Cities for any reason
As you can imagine, if we're going to make this building a reality it's going to be in large part because of the support from each of you. We need help from builders, developers, firefighters, unions, area businesses, state and local authorities and individuals. If you want to be involved in this effort in some way,
please reach out to us at email@example.com and let us know how you might be able to help.
We look forward to hearing from you!
