Manna Scholarship Fund, Incorporated (MSF, INC) was developed in order to provide direct payment of inpatient treatment costs due to inadequate insurance coverage for people with eating disorders. This effort is due to help fray the high cost of specialized care and to avoid the often difficult decisions to be made for families of ED patients (ongoing treatment for seriously ill patient versus exorbitant cost of care). Our desire is that all recipients, and eventually, all individuals who have been personally affected by an eating disorder, will receive the appropriate care to help them eliminate their eating disorder altogether.

Mercy Ministries
Our free-of-charge program serves a diverse population of young women from various socio-economic backgrounds, aged 13-28. Many of the girls, who come to Mercy for help, are facing a combination of debilitating circumstances and have been in various treatment facilities with unsuccessful long-term results. We are committed to providing the young women we serve with the most excellent program services that allow them to recognize their self-worth and prepare them to reach their full potential. Our non-conventional approach to healing allows young women to permanently stop destructive cycles and prepares them to take hope out into their communities
