Welcome new member, Morningstar Children and Family Services
The Morningstar Youth Estate Campus site was formerly owned and operated by the Grant family in the early 1800's. In the 1930’s, the property was acquired by the State of Georgia and developed into Santo Domingo State Park. After World War II, a local resident, J. Ardell Nation, had a vision to create “Boys Estate,” an orphanage for homeless boys. Mr. Nation was given title to the land and built a program modeled after the famous “Boy’s Town.” After many years of operation Boys Estate changed its name to Youth Estate and began to accept girls as well as boys. In 1996, Morningstar assumed ownership of the property. Today, Morningstar offers a residential program for youth which includes an on-site school, qualified nursing staff, mental health team, Chapel, programs, consumer-driven committees, and numerous outdoor/indoor activities including their brand new Low Element ropes course. In addition, they offer Therapeutic Foster Care, and Mental Health, and Family Services.
We are pleased to welcome Morningstar Children and Family Services to Together Georgia.
