White Pine Center for Healing helps those experiencing or recovering from eating disorders, body image issues, weight stigma, and trauma. They promote healing, recovery, prevention and guide individuals through their recovery journey.
White Pine Center for Healing was the recipient of a Marketing Scholarship donated by a contributing team of creative partners - Jenny Poff, Alex Lockwood, VCC, and Aurora Exhibits. The group donated more than $6,000 worth of brand development, promotional materials, refreshed website, email marketing, blog articles, and social content to kick-start their community awareness.
“Working with Jenny to build a more professional look, to help us communicate clearly what we do and offer to our Erie community, has been a thought-provoking and impressive experience. We now have the tools and confidence we need to reach out to regional partners, expand our educational programming, and offer more treatment programs to those in the Erie area,” said Mary Machuga, Executive Director.
White Pine Center for Healing engages businesses, organizations, and more importantly schools and family centers to provide prevention and treatment options for individuals and their loved ones. Treatments include classes, support groups, individual therapy, clinical assessments, referrals, and evidence-based programs. Early intervention for eating disorders is critical for individuals to recover and grow into a healthy lifestyle.
