BURN SURVIVORS

OF NEW ENGLAND.

ABOUT BSONE

Burn Survivors of New England is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to supporting & empowering burn survivors and their families as they build active and engaged lives.

GET INVOLVED

Your BSONE organization remains active, so we need your help.  Since March during the pandemic we have donated meals to our Boston Burn Units and have purchased Communication Tablets/iPads for the use of inpatient burn survivors (4 hospitals) so they can "visit" virtually with their loved ones and possibly attend peer support one-on-one and our monthly peer support group.  We've also recorded encouragement videos for Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital to play on their in-house system.  We think this is vital to initial recovery.  Some of you have done FaceBook fundraisers to celebrate your birthdays...THANK YOU!  We encourage everyone to participate however they can to help us remain a viable organization.

“Our organization earned a 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency!  Now everyone can see our strategy, metrics, and achievements.  Check out our updated #NonprofitProfile on Candid”
