Eating Recovery Center Foundation

The Eating Recovery Center Foundation (ERCF) was established in 2012 with the following mission:

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 is developing 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 will provide a single portal through which the eating disorders community – including patients, families and treatment professionals – can 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 Eating Recovery Center Foundation will make grants to support research in the area of eating disorders with the goal of improving diagnosis, treatment and recovery for patients and families.

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.
