The Renfrew Center Foundation, founded in 1990, is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to advancing the education, prevention, advocacy, research and treatment of eating disorders. Through its programs, the Foundation aims to increase awareness of eating disorders as a public health issue and research the pathology and recovery patterns of people with eating disorders. The Foundation also seeks to educate professionals in the assessment, treatment and prevention of behavioral and emotional disorders by sponsoring an Annual Conference, as well as numerous seminars throughout the country. To date, the Foundation has trained more than 35,000 professionals.

The Renfrew Center Foundation is committed to helping women and girls on the road to recovery by providing financial assistance to those who might otherwise not be able to continue treatment.
