Morningstar Children and Family Services was established in 1996 to serve children with developmental disabilities. For over two decades children with profound developmental disabilities, who are also in foster care, have called our residential campus home. As a CARF accredited agency, we provide the highest quality of care for up to 52 children at any given time. Our children come from all over Georgia. During their time at Morningstar, residents receive a homelike setting for living, counseling to address the trauma they may have suffered, specialized educational supports, and recreational opportunities. Morningstar has two other programs, Morningstar Community Counseling and Morningstar Foster Care. We served 676 children accross our three programs in 2019. Each day, over 100 team members work to connect our kids with brighter days. We are asking you to join us in creating brighter days as we launch our Secure Families Initiative, a campaign to raise the gap between state funding and the true cost of caring for our children. Please consider donating to this fund which will allow our team to thoughtfully meet critical needs of children in our program.
