At Morgan & Morgan, we believe in helping our communities beyond the confines of the courtroom.
The lawyers at Morgan & Morgan are actively involved in our respective communities throughout the states of Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Georgia. The firm requires that all of our partners hold at least one position of leadership in a charitable, service, or civic organization.
The partners at Morgan & Morgan have individually founded and maintained such worthy causes as the Boys Town USA Project, providing guidance during its inception and organizing fundraising and donations. John Morgan has been instrumental in assisting the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, whose goal is to help people like his brother, who have neuromuscular and spinal injuries, eventually walk or live with more mobility. Nick Buonicotti Jr., whose father was a professional football player and founder of the Miami Project, is a partner with Morgan & Morgan.
Destiny Foundation of Central Florida and Attorney John Morgan have partnered to establish The People's Clinic, which provides uninsured children in Central Florida with free medical care and health services. The People's Clinic, located in Orlando, celebrated its grand opening on April 20, 2009. The clinic is the only one of its kind in Central Florida and will provide care for as many as 10,000 uninsured and underinsured children in the Orlando area.
The Destiny Foundation of Central Florida, founded by pastor Scott George, is a nonprofit ministry for the working poor and their families. Although The People's Clinic facility was built more than a year ago, it was only able to operate one day a month because it lacked the funds to cover a full-time medical staff. After learning about Scott's work on behalf of Central Florida's underprivileged residents, John and his wife Ultima generously donated $500,000 so that the clinic could extend its hours of operation.
This donation will cover the salary of a family physician, a nurse practitioner, and specialist who will perform developmental screenings and mental health screenings. The People's Clinic will also provide well-child physicals, immunizations, acute treatment for illnesses, eye care, and dental services for children in need. In addition, wellness education on topics such as healthy cooking, infant care, parenting support, childhood obesity, diabetes, and asthma will be provided by medical staff at the clinic.
The People's Clinic unofficially opened on March 6 and has already treated over 200 children and provided 529 immunizations.
In addition, the entire firm supports the following causes:
