Burn Foundation of America

The Burn Foundation of America provides assistance to burn patients and their families. This includes lodging, meals, transportation, medication, and anti-scarring garments – all free of charge. We believe in the healing power of having your loved ones nearby during the recovery process. 

Family is powerful medicine.

Our Services


The Chavis House is a 40-bed guest house where families of burn patients at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center can stay at no cost.


Local churches and organizations generously prepare and donate meals to our Chavis House guests each day.


Medication, transportation, anti-scarring garments, and other burn related essentials can be provided to patients upon hospital discharge.

One gift can help so many

Families: Each year, thousands of families stay at the Jeffrey Vaden Chavis House and at our partnered hotels while their loved ones are receiving treatment at Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, and other locations across the US. Your donations help provide a home-away-from-home for these families.

Burn Patients: The Burn Foundation serves 1,000 patients annually and you can help provide transportation, medication, and anti-scarring garments for a burn patient who is ready to go home.

Children: Approximately 30% of the burn patients that we serve are children under the age of 18. These amazing little survivors have unique needs during and after their stay in the hospital.

We put your dollars to work.
