ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
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.
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.
