The Grossman Burn Foundation
The Mission of the Grossman Burn Foundation is to provide local and worldwide support in the areas of healthcare, including financial aid, safety, legal support and education to families and children who have suffered a burn or related injury. They support the development of self-sustainable communities worldwide through partnerships and teamwork.
Some of the projects the Grossman Burn Foundation support are The Humanitarian Assistance Manual, The Stop Violence Against Women Globally Campaign, The Triage Training Program (TTP), Project Faith, The International Burn Center in Kabul
On a local level, the Grossman Burn Foundation supports community education and prevention efforts and meets the needs of burn victims and their families who receive treatment at the Grossman Burn Center, which serves communities throughout Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura and Kern counties, through two major programs.
The first effort they support is the Local Community Outreach Initiative which includes prevention awareness, related activities and partnerships with agencies working in the public safety, education and healthcare sectors to raise awareness for parents, professionals and other key groups that work with communities on how they can prevent burn injuries.
The second program is Grossman Burn Foundation’s Patient Supportive Services and Assistance Program. This program is being developed to provide a continuum of care and support for burn victims while they are receiving treatment at a Grossman Burn Center (in Orange, Los Angeles and Kern counties) and their families who need emergency and/or on-going assistance to meet specific and immediate needs. Support Services may include temporary housing for victims and loved ones, food, clothing, transportation, counseling, peer support and other basic needs.
