Making Opportunities Reality Granting Assistance Nationwide (MORGAN)
The M.O.R.G.A.N Project exists to provide families with specialized programs for children with special health care needs, disabilities, sensory issues, and concerns, thus improving the quality of life for the entire family. Located in East Central Florida, we serve families locally and nationwide through a host of quality-of-life programs.
Through Morgan’s Legacy Gift Program, The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project provides adaptive equipment, sensory supplies, conference travel and registrations, and other non-cash resources to families of children with disabilities to improve their quality of life. This is meant to be a funding of last resort for families.
Morgan Malfara was born a beautiful, blue-eyed baby boy on October 22, 1997. With his parents Kristen and Robert and big brothers Jordan and B.J. they made a perfect family unit. At 10 weeks old, Morgan started to exhibit symptoms that would eventually be diagnosed as Leukodystrophy, a rare degenerative disorder with no treatment, no cure, and an expectation that Morgan would only live to about three years old.
In the end, Morgan survived and thrived under his family’s care and Kristen (Morgan's mom) recognized a need for a place to help families like hers find the resources and understanding of people going through similar experiences.
While The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project is evolving, its mission remains the same, weaving a community around the solutions required to make these lives a little bit easier. A little bit better. A little bit more connected.
