Message From Our CEO                                                                                                                                              

Dear Friends of ABF,

This was a pivotal year for our community.  Not only did Arizona Burn Foundation (ABF) continue to support burn survivors and their families during their moment of crisis, we have needed to find new ways to engage with them and our community as the pandemic continued to limit our ability to gather.

As we entered the second year of seeing our programs offered virtually we needed to ensure our audiences were able to connect with each other.  We needed to provide the much needed education, support and fellowship that ABF has been known for since our founding in 1967.

Now we focus on the future.  This past fall we have been able to offer smoke alarm walks in several communities.  We have also formally opened our office in Tucson so we can better serve the Southern Arizona area.  We have unveiled, and now executing key components of our 3-year expansion plan.  This plan will see ABF have a larger presence in Flagstaff, Prescott, Southern Arizona and Yuma. 

As you read our Annual Impact Report you will see ABF has truly delivered on our mission promise.

Rex Albright
