Native San Antonian Hartman grew the company he founded at age 19 into the largest locally-owned homebuilding and land development enterprise. In 2005, he sold it and pursued – along with wife Maggie – bold initiatives to help the special-needs community. Inspired by daughter Morgan, who was born with cognitive and physical special needs, the Hartmans opened Ultra-Accessible™, fully-inclusive, non-profit Morgan’s Wonderland in 2010. The tremendous success of the theme park spawned other ventures such as Morgan’s Inspiration Island splash park, Morgan’s Wonderland Sports complex, new Morgan’s Wonderland Camp and projects under construction such as the Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland, or The MAC. These endeavors and more to come now comprise the Morgan’s Wonderland Inclusion Foundation (MWIF), which coordinates planning, fundraising and communication for the entire Morgan’s Wonderland “family.” Since 2005, the Hartmans have committed more than $75 million for the betterment of people with special needs.
Hartman has worked alongside husband Gordon in trying to make life better for individuals with special needs. A lifelong San Antonian, she was employed in the mortgage business when she met Gordon. They married in 1991, and after daughter Morgan’s birth, she became a stay-at-home mom to focus on Morgan’s care and well-being. In 2013, Hartman was diagnosed with and successfully treated for breast cancer. As a result of that experience, she became a staunch advocate for early detection and treatment. She is actively involved with Morgan’s Wonderland and other members of the Morgan’s Wonderland Inclusion Foundation (MWIF) “family” of Ultra-Accessible™, fully-inclusive venues, and she also devotes her time and energy to the foundation’s annual gala fundraiser and to many other organizations that assist those with special needs.
