Since 1976, ANAD has grown to become the leading nonprofit in the U.S. providing free, peer support services to anyone struggling with an eating disorder. What began as one support group in Highland Park, Illinois, is now 11 virtual support groups, a Helpline, and mentorship program. Today, ANAD serves 250 people every week. Our work is made possible by our diverse board and staff, generous donors, and our nationwide network of volunteers who understand firsthand the ups and downs of the recovery journey.
In this 45th year of service, ANAD aims to expand services by 45% over the next year. Join our 45th anniversary expansion through the fundraising events described below. More events will be added throughout the year, so stay connected!
