Residential Care

Morningstar's Youth Estate Campus (MYEC) is a unique residential treatment facility on 25 acres of Coastal Georgia property. The youth in our care have dual diagnosis (MID with Axis I), and many have suffered abuse and/or neglect. Their IQs range between 40-80 and the ages range 12-18. Our residential housing includes two boys' cottages, and one girls' cottage. Our campus offers a gymnasium, cafeteria, playground, ropes course, screened pavilion, fishing pond, nature trails, bicycles, and more.

What We Do

We implement an individualized level system that focuses on the abilities, needs, and skill deficits for each child to monitor their development and/or progress relating to their service plan goals and objectives. We provide 24-hour watchful oversight with numerous supports on-site to assist each child in being successful in their transition to the least restrictive environment possible.
