Our programs are designed to assist burn survivors and individuals with disabilities on their path to rebuilding and living their best lives.

Peer Support

Together we are stronger! Burn survivors face unique challenges as they return home after the trauma. It is helpful for burn survivors to be in a peer support environment. Sharing similar experiences, assist them in the transition and adaption to everyday life. Our staff works with the social workers team at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Burn Center to  provide a regular peer support group each month. Our director is certified through the Phoenix Burn Society Peer Support Training Program for burn survivors and their families.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest!

Study's show that low-income students cannot afford to enroll in 95 Percent of colleges and that those among students in the bottom income quintile have a college-enrollment rate of 67%. In addition, 11% of all enrolled undergraduates are reported as having a disability.

 

With help from our generous donors, in 2020 we will award scholarships in categories ranging from $2500 to $3500 dollars to qualifying students wishing to further their education at an accredited university or trade school.
