“I like this quote: “Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded.” I find my work to be very fulfilling. The children here at Morningstar have typically been through a lot, so it is important for all of us here to work as a team and assist them in healing and growing to their fullest potential. I believe we all strive to see the children here succeed and achieve their goals.”– Jacquelyn Ferguson, Licensed Therapist, Brunswick Counseling Clinic
“If you want to see work in progress come to Morningstar. We have just had a renovation to our café, and it’s so exciting to see our kid’s reactions. They love knowing we care about making [Morningstar] feel more like home.”– Tracie Yates, Food Service Coordinator
“I enjoy the work I do for the children of Morningstar. Many days, I want to throw the towel in, but when I think about the hurt, the disappointment, and the abandonment that they have already endured, I can't. 'You can't teach children to behave better by making them feel worse. When children feel better, they behave better. - Pam Leo'”– McClary Baker, Campus Life Supervisor
“Morningstar is not a job, it is a passion. A passion to change children's lives. Here you will make a difference and grow exponentially.”– Brian Bean, COO, Morningstar
