Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser. Our mission is to significantly reduce the number of burn injuries through prevention education, and to enhance the quality of life of those affected by burn injuries in California.
The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF) is a California-based nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing burns and fires and providing services to those who have been affected by a burn injury. AARBF brings together health care providers, firefighters, emergency workers, burn care professionals, burn survivors and others to enhance the quality of life for burn survivors and to make burn injuries a thing of the past.
AARBF’s burn survivor services programs engage them in a community of peers and support networks to help build confidence and provide social opportunities, connects them with resources for coping with their injuries, and supports burn survivors’ immediate basic human needs. Currently, AARBF has six survivor services programs (Champ Camp, Young Adult Summit, The Getaway Family Camp, School Re-entry Program, in-hospital support, and support groups), and two comprehensive prevention programs (Firefighters in Safety Education and Community Outreach).
