Join us in building a community that celebrates resilience, embraces diversity, and champions the indomitable human spirit. Together, we can turn the challenges of the past into the stepping-stones for a brighter future.

At Burn Survivors of New England, our purpose is deeply rooted in the commitment to serve the burn survivor community and their families. As a non-profit organization, we focus on providing a comprehensive network of support and resources, aimed at fostering resilience and empowerment in the face of adversity.


We provide partial scholarship awards, with a special emphasis on assisting new burn survivors and their families, for participation in the esteemed Phoenix Society World Burn Congress. While our priority remains supporting those new to the journey, we also extend this opportunity to other deserving burn survivors and their families. Our goal is to ensure that financial constraints do not hinder access to the transformative experiences and invaluable resources offered at the Congress.


Additionally, we strive to create a nurturing environment through our support groups, where burn survivors and their families can find solace, share experiences, and access valuable information to aid in their emotional healing process.

Advocacy lies at the heart of our mission. We work tirelessly to champion laws and policies that safeguard the rights and well-being of burn survivors and their families, ensuring their voices are heard and their needs are met.


Underpinning all our efforts is our adherence to the guidelines outlined in Chapter 180 of the general laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and our status as a Section 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are steadfast in our dedication to building a stronger, more resilient community for burn survivors and their families, striving towards a future filled with hope and possibilities.
