It is at times like these that we often forget that the Edward King House is an organization that relies on donations to sustain its operations. Now, more than ever, we need your help to keep our programming funded. Although our brick and mortar building is closed, our programming and services are still up and running in a whole new way. But we need your help to continue our work to reach the older adult community with resources, up to date information and ways to stay connected and healthy.
