Hello Life provides free peer mentorship, support and a pathway to healing to those battling eating disorders and negative body image in Cowlitz County, Washington and surrounding areas. All services provided by Hello Life are free. Hello Life serves all individuals who self-identity as struggling with an eating disorder and negative body image.

Hello Life has two core programs, The Eating Disorder Recovery Program and the Eating Disorder Prevention Program. The Eating Disorder Recovery Program helps match those in recovery with a peer mentor who helps guide them on their recovery journey, connects clients with resources and education specific to eating disorders, and helps provide financial assistance for eating disorder treatment for underserved, low-income and minority communities in Cowlitz County, or individuals who otherwise could not afford treatment. Hello Life works hard to use personalized referrals for those we serve who are interested in receiving professional medical or mental health treatment. Hello Life works hard to listen to the needs of our clients and try to find them professional referrals that fit their needs.

Our Prevention program focus focuses on reaching our community through body positive groups, community awareness, education and connection. Through this program, Hello Life’s goal is to provide our community with the resources, support and awareness it needs to support eating disorder prevention.

We are an accredited 501c(3) nonprofit tax exempt organization and a proud partner agency of United Way of Cowlitz/Wahkiakum and Columbia Counties.We believe that recovery is about self-love, self-compassion and self-acceptance. No one person’s journey is ever the same, and we believe in meeting each person exactly where they are at.

Hello Life was founded by Shira Lile in April of 2015 after moving to Cowlitz County and realizing there was a need for resources to support eating disorder recovery and prevention .
