As a CPA and member of the Finance Committee of the Board of Directors, I have been continually impressed with the outstanding quality and integrity of the financial aspects of Morningside Ministries. The financial staff--from CFO and throughout the organization--do exceptional work. The most recent independent audit was "squeaky-clean." Every prior recommendation for improvements in internal controls was implemented successfully. It was the quality of the financial reporting that helped convince me to join the Board and help contribute to Morningside's continuing success. Some of the senior managers have family members resident at Morningside, and my own mother has reserved a space. The quality and efficiency of the organization are outstanding. Morningside is one of only two nonprofit senior care organizations in the region, and keeps it's service mission first and foremost. It is worthy of our support.
