Mission and Purpose:
Our ultimate mission is to gain the trust and confidence of burn survivors so that we may be a source of strength and understanding for them and to empower them to engage wholeheartedly in starting a new life as a survivor. The New Life Burn Society encourages and supports activities that bring survivors of all ages together to learn and grow.

Our Goals:

  • To create, develop and publish support materials, such as brochures and newsletters that will help inform burn survivors of support groups and resources.
  • To increase participation in the New Life Burn Society.
  • To develop a list of volunteers willing to work with patients and families to help them to understand the needs of a survivor and the role they can play in the recovery process.
  • To give presentations to area schools and community organizations in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Burn Center and the Metropolitan Fire Fighters Burn Center Fund, Inc.
  • To create and maintain a Web site.

Meeting Times:
Weekly meetings are held every Tuesday from noon to 1:00 p.m.
Meetings are held in the Dr. Andrew Munster Conference Room (3rd floor, Burn Conference Room)

Quarterly meetings are held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
