“Our mission is to provide the tools for a therapeutic and fun experience to children with physical and developmental needs. We do this through our 5 unique Quality of Life support programs and volunteer outreach.” Learn more about what we do and why we do it.
Making a Difference
The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project has identified caregiver support as a high priority. However, the “tools” that parents need to make their job easier are not readily available. These are essential items that not only assist the parents in properly and safely caring for their special-needs child, but enhance the Quality-of-life for the child at the same time. That’s where we step in!
You can make a difference too for families of medically fragile children with disabilities! Make a tax-deductible donation, volunteer, hold a fundraiser, or even help us every time you shop online or simply surf the web.

Dear Friends, Clients and Supporters:
It is with great sadness that we report that Morgan’s Place has suffered extensive damage due to fire, smoke and soot. We had a fire in the building yesterday. The great news is that NO ONE was in the building and no one was hurt!!! The initial report is that we were very fortunate and repairs to the building itself will be moderate but not catastrophic. The entire building was exposed for nearly 12 hours to heavy volumes of black smoke and soot, however, and the the entire contents have extensive damage as a result.
All activities at Morgan’s Place have been suspended indefinitely until we know better what we are dealing with.
As we move forward with cleanup and rebuilding we will most definitely have needs for referrals for services and will be reaching out to all of you for assistance as we discover these needs - and of course we will need lots of good old fashioned manpower at some point!!!!
We will be sure to follow up with additional information as we have it, and we ask that you keep our organization in your thoughts and prayers as we deal with this devastating loss.
We have no doubt that our small charity will rise from the ashes, and will rebuild bigger and better to continue to serve the children we love.
As always, thank you for your continued support!!
For the kids,
Kristen Malfara, Founder & Executive Director
Update - 7/1/17
On behalf of all of us here at The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project, I sincerely thank you for the outpouring of support and offers of assistance that Tonya and I have a received over the last two days. Our days have been filled with meetings with insurance adjusters, and restoration companies but we for the first time this afternoon are beginning to feel optimistic about the future of Morgan's Place. Hearing from friends and strangers alike, having the media get the word out about our needs, and the parents of the children that we so love stepping up to help us during this time is extremely heartwarming. We will post updates as things progress, but we have been told to prepare for a lengthy process and anticipate resuming our operations no earlier than this fall. One of our clients has started a fund raiser to help us offset the costs in the interim, for those expenses that won't be covered by insurance. As always, even a small donation can make a big difference ❤️
For the kids,

Dear Friends and Supporters,
We are very happy to be celebrating our 15th year of this organization, named in honor of our beautiful little boy, Morgan. In the past 19+ years of caring for our son, we have come to appreciate all of the difficulties involved in caring for a special-needs child in the family home. It is our hope that through this project we can help other family caregivers to be able to better care for their own kids with special needs, by providing resources, gently used disability equipment exchange, and multi-sensory therapeutic play. We have been extremely fortunate to have found a wonderful Leukodystrophy support group, and many exceptional parents of special-needs children to share our experiences with. We also recognize that not all family caregivers of children with special needs have been as fortunate as we have been, and this is our opportunity to help others.
The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project has been created with love BY parents of a child with special needs, FOR parents of children with special needs.
