Why I Work at Morning Pointe

“You do it because you want to, you do it because you are fulfilling a need helping people that cannot help themselves.”

How We Made Our Mark in 2017
The 20th anniversary celebration kicked off a yearlong campaign, ‘Make your Mark’ as residents, families and associates stepped up their volunteer work and community connections making a difference across the southeast for hundreds of people and organizations. It became a regular part of the activity calendar involving the whole Morning Pointe family. The goal, 20,000 hours of service in 2017. Morning Pointe ended the year with double that. The work represents what Morning Pointe is all about serving seniors, their families and the greater community.
Morning Pointe residents share their most treasured memories about their fathers. Happy Father’s Day from Morning Pointe Senior Living serving seniors and their families across the Southeast.
