Mission Statement

We envision a world without eating disorders. Our mission is to provide effective, accessible resources that empower the prevention of eating disorders and strengthen support for recovery. We impact change through advocacy, and we strive to reduce the stigma of eating disorders by sharing stories of struggle, strength and hope.

Description

The Emily Program Foundation started in 2007 to advance the education, outreach and research efforts of The Emily Program, a Minnesota-based national leader in innovative and personalized eating disorders treatment. In 2008, we merged with the Anna Westin Foundation, a nonprofit established by Kitty Westin and her family following the tragic death of their daughter, Anna, from an eating disorder.

Through this merger, our focus on eating disorder prevention, support and advocacy emerged. Across the past decade as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, we’ve educated over 35,000 young people about eating disorders and have trained parents and caregivers on prevention. We’ve provided financial support, via living-expense grants, to individuals to help them complete their treatment and find recovery. And our advocacy leadership resulted in passage of the first-ever federal eating disorder legislation through the Anna Westin Act and the 21st Century Cures Act.
