Mission Statement

The mission of The Manna Scholarship Fund is to provide hope, networking, and financial aid to those seeking treatment and freedom from eating disorders.

Description

Manna Scholarship Fund (MSF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing funds for residential and inpatient eating disorder treatment for individuals lacking insurance coverage or for those with inadequate insurance coverage. MSF grants scholarships to recipients by providing direct payment to partnering eating disorder treatment facilities .

MSF was founded on Biblical principles. In the Old Testament, Psalm 78:24 says, "he [God] rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven." God knew what the people needed, how much they needed, and provided. In the New Testament, Jesus becomes the "manna" - "For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world" (John 6:33). The MSF has been designed to encourage recipients with eating disorders to use food as God intended; that it is provided by God and has been created to meet our physical needs. Similarly, our donors have been provided for financially, and have the ability to provide for those who have not been gifted with abundant financial resources.

Therefore, the Manna Scholarship Fund was designed to help replace the "addictive process" of eating disorders with the true Manna. We encourage individuals to seek Him in each and every aspect of life, especially in how they use eating (and other addictive, ineffective coping skills) to resolve what only He can.
