Deb’s expert knowledge, focus and tangible tools have given our team the confidence and strategies to reach new levels as the leading national non-profit for burn survivor and family services. – Amy Acton, Executive Director, Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors
The Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors (PS) is a national organization located in Grand Rapids, Michigan serving burn survivors and their families. They accomplish this through a variety of programs and services, most notably their SOAR program and annual World Burn Congress. In recent years, PS has enjoyed increased exposure through World Burn Congress, its various affiliations within the fire services industry and visible involvement and endorsements from high-profile burn survivors, such as JR Martinez. As a result, PS experienced significant increases in the number of people requesting services and support, and have been challenged to meet those needs.
Philanthropia Partners has worked with PS in a variety of capacities over the past several years, helping advance their capacity and providing thought leadership in several areas, including:
This work has been accomplished through facilitated meetings, one-on-one coaching sessions on site as well as at Philanthropia Partners’ offices, and through the use of specific meeting technologies. Deb has interfaced with a variety of team members including the executive director, various board officers, leadership staff and other PS consultants.
