Rebecca’s Eating Disorder Foundation is a 501(c) (3), California
Public Benefit Corporation. We provide partial scholarships for clients with eating disorders who want recovery, but do not
have the funds. We screen each scholarship applicant for motivation, determination, willingness, need, and appropriate level
of care. Our scholarships can also be given to other California inpatient treatment programs, if necessary.
As the years have progressed, we are seeing more and more clients
financially devastated by the high cost of inpatient treatment. Insurance benefits are stopped just when the client is starting
to understand recovery.
It is a hard transition moving from a secluded, safe, confined, inpatient
environment into the ‘real world.’ Without the transitional piece of recovery, many relapse. They are not ready
to go home, but cannot afford more inpatient treatment.
We provide transitional eating disorder programs for the many
women who have no financial support for continued treatment. We not only provide treatment to these women, we help them find
jobs and enroll in school. Many clients are now living fulfilled lives, free from the eating disorder. These women thank you
for your generous support.
Our mission is to create public awareness for disordered eating, eating
disorders and food addictions. Our goal is to raise funds for eating
disorder treatment scholarships. We believe that full eating
disorder recovery is possible with access to the right treatment
options. Our definition of 'full eating disorder recovery' is
demonstrated in a life of meaning, purpose, and service without the constant thoughts of food, weight, diets, excessive
exercise, or body image.
