Morton Memorial is known on the mountain as the hub of many vital ministries, made possible by generous giving and partnerships with the South Cumberland Community Foundation, the University of the South's Office of Civic Engagement, Mountain Top, St. Thomas Medical Partners' Mobile Health Unit, VISTA and local Rotary groups, among others. The recent expansion of Morton's facilities, completed in 2019, made possible more community involvement like Al-Anon meetings and Diabetes Seminars, for example.
