Dr. Genie Burnett/Manna Scholarship Fund
The Manna Scholarship Fund, aka Manna Fund, is a 501c3 organization that has been operational for 15 years. Their mission statement is dedicated to providing hope and financial assistance to individuals who need eating disorder treatment scholarships. Manna provides funding for inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient eating disorder treatment for individuals lacking insurance coverage or for those with inadequate insurance coverage. Manna Fund grants scholarships to recipients by providing direct payment to partnering eating disorder treatment facilities for the highest levels of care. However, the local program, Manna Treatment, provides direct client treatment in the Gwinnett area. Manna has expanded its definition of treatment services to include those who have experienced trauma and have trauma-based issues. Manna Treatment also provides outpatient therapy for individuals with varying issues and needs such as anxiety, depression, marital issues, and family therapy.
