Survivor Support

What’s more, we help burn survivors reclaim their identity and dignity. We believe each burn survivor is more than the sum of their scars, and that our work is instrumental to their holistic recovery.

In 1991, we launched our inaugural Camp Courage. A decade later, we opened our first Forever Courage House to provide housing support to survivors’ families while in recovery at the hospital. In March 2015, we moved to our current location at 1432 N. 7th Street in Phoenix, Arizona.
