Who We Are
The founders of Project HEAL, Liana Rosenman and Kristina Saffran, met while undergoing treatment for anorexia nervosa at just 13-years-old. The two girls helped each other to reach full recovery, and decided to help others achieve it as well.
In the spring of 2008, both at the age of 15, they founded Project HEAL to raise money for others suffering with eating disorders who want to recover but are unable to afford treatment. Insurance coverage for eating disorders is severely lacking, leaving many unable to get the help they need.
In 2017, Project HEAL expanded our mission to make a larger impact. In addition to providing assistance in accessing treatment, we are now strengthening early intervention and recovery support through our new peer mentorship program, Communities of HEALing.
Recovery is about courage. It is about the courage to take small steps, trusting that they will lead to great accomplishments.
