Everyone knows someone who is struggling with an eating disorder, body image distress or other disordered eating challenges. COPE has been active in Volusia and Flagler counties since 2001, dedicated to make a difference. We are involved in the local schools, colleges, community health forums, lobbying in Washington, D.C. for legislative change, speaking across the area and now proud to offer scholarship funds for those who would not be able to receive essential health care.
All of us involved in COPE: Community Outreach for the Prevention of Eating Disorders, are dedicated volunteers, working to eliminate eating disorders, improve body image and restore peace and balance to those affected by these life threatening challenges. We have been a community resource, and 501©(3), Jan. 2001.
COPE provided many resources that are a beacon of hope for those who suffer or have loved ones affected by eating disorders and body image issues.
