Founded in 1977, the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors is the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury. Our name comes from the legendary bird that lives 500 years and is consumed by flame, but rises again—reborn from its ashes—more brilliant than it was before.
