Project HEAL: Help To Eat, Accept and Live
Project HEAL: Help to Eat, Accept and Live (www.theprojectheal.org) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that raises money for people with eating disorders who are not able to afford treatment, promotes healthy body image and self esteem, and encourages all people to believe that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible. The founders of Project HEAL, Liana Rosenman and Kristina Saffran, met while undergoing treatment for anorexia nervosa when they were just 15 years old. The two girls helped each other to reach full recovery, and then wanted to help others achieve it, as well. Since it's founding in 2008, Project HEAL has sent 36 applicants to treatment. There are currently over 40 chapters of Project HEAL across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Australia that work to promote the mission and values of Project HEAL. Additionally, we have developed partnerships with fifteen recognized eating disorder treatment centers across the country who offer treatment grants to our applicants. Finally, we have become the premier voice of eating disorder recovery, with an expansive social media reach of over 11k followers on Facebook, 120k on Google Plus, 7k on Instagram and 4k on Twitter.
Project HEAL: Help to Eat, Accept and Live is a 501(c) not-for-profit organization in the United States and a federal not-for-profit organization under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (NFP Act). We provide financial assistance grant funding for people with eating disorders who cannot afford treatment, promote healthy body image and self esteem, and serve as a testament that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
