Serving Our Community's Elderly Since 1893

We've been serving the elderly of Springfield, Illinois for OVER 125 years.

The mission of King's Daughters Organization is to aid the elderly in our community through both direct volunteering and financial support by way of our grant program. Our circles of friendship are committed to the support and well-being of the elderly in our community. We hope you will consider joining us in this effort.
