At A Place of Our Own, we encourage you not to be silenced by shame and secrecy…
WE'RE HERE FOR YOU
There’s no shortage of help. You can choose recovery.
CHANGES MAKE A DIFFERENCE
No matter how small you believe the changes are, make the move now to be informed and supported by others.
WE'RE DEDICATED TO REBUILDING LIVES
We began as a single support group devoted to the families and friends of those who suffer from eating disorders.
RECOVERY IS A LIFE-LONG JOURNEY
A PLACE OF OUR OWN
For our community in the community – a safe, homelike place for rebuilding, replenishing and recovery.
WE KNOW FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
It takes dedication to support and guidance to make change happen.
CREATE YOUR STORY
Expressing yourself through art in any way you choose can bring clarity and understanding.
A SPRINGBOARD FOR FRIENDSHIPS
Support groups provide a safe place for individuals and families to grow and learn from one another.
HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE
Thanks so much to our 2016 holiday gift drive donor and volunteers! We were able to deliver nearly 400 items to local treatment centers to give to patients in recovery from an eating disorder!
Tell me more
Eating disorders are the number one killer of all mental illnesses, yet they remain widely misunderstood. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and their variants, consist of severe disturbances in eating behavior and weight management. They often coexist with other mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The consequences of eating disorders are serious and can be life-threatening.
Looking for a way to get involved in your community? We are always seeking new volunteers to join our team. The Eating Disorder Foundation relies on over 100 dedicated volunteers to provide support and education throughout Colorado. Whether it’s a few hours a week or a few times a year, we need generous people like you to help break the silence and end the stigma.
Are you looking for a fulfilling way to give back to the community you serve? EDF is looking for volunteer therapists to help facilitate our free support groups. Just once a month can make a difference. If you’re interested in finding out more, please contact Christine Evans. Please, help us help those who are struggling.
