Recovery Program

Designed by the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, this hospital-based program is intended to make it easier for volunteers to provide peer support to patients and their families. Peer support assists in adapting to a burn injury through sharing similar experiences.

Many people who successfully recover from a burn injury find purpose and meaning by helping others make the transition from burn victim to burn survivor. Those who recover successfully have learned a lot through trial and error and hope to make the road easier for others. The SOAR training program empowers volunteers with information and skills needed to provide appropriate forms of support.

After volunteers have applied to the program and been screened and trained, the program matches them with patients who have been identified as wanting to speak to another burn survivor.

  • Caring Connections is a monthly meeting with the SOAR Volunteers, commencing at 4pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
  • Adult Burn Survivor Retreat is an annual retreat with our SOAR Volunteers attending.
