“If you have a passion for helping others and want a feeling of completeness, then stop wishing and just do it. Morningstar has allowed me to put my energy and things that I am passionate about back into the lives of the kids we serve here at Morningstar.”– BreTanya Rogers, Residential Services Specialist
“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
“I feel extremely blessed to be a part of a mission that is bigger than myself. I love it here at Morningstar and know the kids do too!”– Jenna Caldwell, Development Associate
“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, Cottage Supervisor
