Mission Statement

Project HEAL is a 501(c)3 non- profit organization that raises money for people with eating disorders who are not able to afford treatment, and promotes healthy body image and self-esteem in hopes of preventing future eating disorders. Our co-founders met while undergoing treatment for anorexia nervosa when they were just 15 years old, helped each other to reach full recovery, and then wanted to help others achieve it, as well.

Description

Project HEAL (Help to: Eat, Accept and Live) is the largest non-profit in the United States (US) delivering prevention, treatment financing, and recovery support for people suffering from eating disorders. Since its founding in 2008, Project HEAL has sent 72 applicants to treatment, established over 40 Chapters and 11 Ambassadors across the United States, Canada, Australia, and England, and developed partnerships with more than 30 recognized eating disorder treatment centers across the US and internationally. The primary function of Chapters is to bring the mission and values of Project HEAL to a local community, including hosting fundraising events for our treatment grant program, educating their community about eating disorders and recovery, promote body positivity, serve as a testament that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible. Additionally, we recently expanded our mission to allow us to help even more people by launching our new peer-led support program which is facilitated through our Chapters.

We are an organization with a large volunteer base and have many volunteer opportunities available year-round. We are always looking for new people who have an interest in and passion for helping others suffering from eating disorders, poor body image, and low self-esteem.
