Who We Serve

Morningstar Children’s Home, the residential care program of Morningstar Children and Family Services, specializes in caring for Georgia’s foster boys, ages 12-21, who have come into care due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Accepting children from across the state, our 55-bed campus is the only residential program in Georgia which solely serves developmentally delayed youth, many with autism and complex care needs. Our residential housing includes three large living cottages, and our campus offers a gymnasium, cafeteria, playground, chapel, screened pavilion, and counseling center. Each resident receives individualized services that address his physical, psychological, social, educational, and spiritual needs.

    Service Impact

    In addition to providing home for the children, our mission is to help create brighter futures for each through therapeutic counseling, life skill training, and workforce coaching.  Additionally, our team works to assure each child continues educational studies toward a high school diploma, coordinates needed medical services, and provides a host of ongoing recreation opportunities and special holiday activities, all to create good mental and physical health, as well as positive childhood memories.

    Children live on our campus for varying lengths of time, averaging 2-3 years. Each resident works a plan toward reunification with parents, if such is possible, acceptance into a foster or kinship home, or acceptance into a more independent or specialized group program. Success looks different for each youth, based on their family dynamics and physical/mental abilities. Our goal is to help them move forward by helping them heal from trauma, as well as learn life and work skills, setting them up for success as they grow toward adulthood.
