About Us

The Firecracker Foundation honors the bravery of children who have survived sexual trauma by building a community invested in the healing of their whole being.

We provide children and teens who have survived sexual trauma with holistic therapeutic services that include trauma sensitive yoga, individual mental health therapy and caretaker support groups for their parents/guardians. These services are provided at no cost for families without medical insurance or an inability to afford the expense of copays.

We also provide medical advocacy services to children and families during specialized medical care and forensic examination after experiencing sexual assault. The responsibility of the pediatric medical advocacy team is to listen, to empathize, and to ensure the survivor’s needs are met to the fullest extent possible. Advocates connect children and families with invaluable community resources and services that address the aftermath of sexual trauma and encourage healing and recovery.

“While we still have a long road to go, we are forever grateful to all who have supported, and will support The Firecracker Foundation.” – Parent

We believe that the healing of a child who has survived sexual trauma should not be restricted by their ability to pay. Your generosity will continue to build holistic programs for child survivors of sexual trauma. Please consider investing in healing today. Click here to make your tax deductible gift.

Volunteers are the backbone of everything we do in this community. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, on one of several committees, in the office or training as a Pediatric Medical Advocate, email Carol Bourne at cbourne@thefirecrackerfoundation.org.

The Firecracker Foundation is always looking for well-trained mental health professionals and trauma-sensitive yoga
