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.

The Firecracker Foundation is a nonprofit that provides holistic healing services to child survivors of sexual trauma under the age of 18 and their families in the tri county area of Mid-Michigan. Some of the services include trauma sensitive yoga, individual mental health therapy and caretaker support groups for their parents or guardians. They also provide medical advocacy services to children and families during specialized medical care and forensic examination after experiencing sexual assault.
