The Edward King House Senior Center was organized and operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The center was formed to serve the recreational, intellectual, social, physical, and health needs of senior citizens, primarily age 50 and over, on Aquidneck Island (Rhode Island). It has established a service center to provide information, referral, and counseling services relating to health care, housing, education, finances, and employment. Moreover, the center provides recreational/social/cognitive activities uniquely suited to the needs of the senior population. Membership in the organization is not necessary in order to obtain services or participate in its activities.
