COR Retreat Daily Schedule

COR Retreat Organization and Affiliation

COR Retreat, Inc. is a Minnesota non-profit corporation and a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. COR Retreat is operated by a small staff. The daily schedule at COR Retreat is facilitated by its Program Director and faithful volunteers who seek to “pass on” a solution of hope and recovery. The registration fees paid by COR Retreat participants cover only a portion of the cost of each retreat and  ongoing administration. The balance of the expenses are funded by donations from those committed to help others overcome their food addiction.

COR Retreat is not affiliated with the programs offered by The Retreat. However, COR Retreat is fortunate to be able to utilize the McIver Center and offer The Retreat’s award winning, and healthy, cuisine to its participants. COR Retreat is also not affiliated with and does not represent Overeater's Anonymous, Inc. or any other recovery program.
