To be a national resource for individuals affected by eating disorders, as well as their families, caregivers and treating professionals. The Foundation provides information, education and training on best practices for identification and treatment of eating disorders.

Eating Recovery Center Foundation Programs

The Eating Recovery Center Foundation supports the following programs to expand awareness and information on the treatment of eating disorders for the general public, with a special emphasis on families, patients and treatment providers. 

Eating Disorders Information Gateway

The Eating Disorders Information Gateway is a resource that provides a single portal through which the eating disorders community Рincluding patients, families and treatment professionals Рcan access a variety of materials to advance public understanding of eating disorders. Consolidating and archiving the essential information will minimize search time, maximize transparency, and provide patients, families and professionals with easy access to relevant information.

Eating Disorder Research

The foundation also works with The Body Project Collaborative to bring The Body Project to college campuses.

Charitable Care Fund

A Charitable Care Fund will be established to help defray out-of-pocket costs for patients and families, assist with transition out of covered care, or help extend benefits or treatment beyond what is covered by insurance.

Family Programs

The Eating Recovery Center Foundation will develop training programs to help support families of eating disordered patients.
