Our Mission
Flicker of Hope Foundation was founded with the purpose of providing emotional and practical support for burn survivors and their families. Burn survivor support is presented in the form of counseling, scholarship opportunities and the sharing of useful information.

Our Goals
The objectives of Flicker of Hope Foundation are to help young burn survivors achieve a measure of social confidence and meet specific educational goals. A major focus of the Foundation will be to provide funds for those with financial need when they are accepted into an accredited post-secondary institution.

 
Fire Safety Community
We actively advocate national policies endorsed by the fire and life safety community. Since 1998, we have worked to restore the Children’s Safe Sleepwear Standard to the Flammable Fabrics Act. We give motivational talks to firefighters and educates school children about the importance of fire safety practices in the home.
 
Re-Entry
We will work with schools to ease the move of a burned child back into the classroom by visiting with the child’s classmates ahead of his/her return and discussing with them the nature of their friend’s injuries, the recuperative process, and what they can expect when the child returns to class.
