The Tennessee Branch
- began its 129th year of service In His Name in 2017. The branch has a large membership, and

The King’s Daughters School
The King’s Daughters School marks its 60th year in service during 2017. They are a nationally recognized, co-educational, boarding school that serves over 100 children and adults with developmental disabilities. Students receive educational, vocational, social, and life skills training so that they may become mature, productive citizens.
The School offers four programs:
The Early Learning Intervention Program addresses the needs of preschoolers who are developmentally delayed, enabling them to enter the public school system at an appropriate age.
The Total Lifestyles Program serves students 7-22 in individual academic and program plans based upon each student’s needs and potential. These individualized plans incorporate both academic and residential goals that are designed to promote independence and personal growth.
The Young Adult Learning Program is a transitional program for young men and women who have completed their high school training. Students in this program are typically ages 22-30 and require additional life skills training before moving into an adult or community program.
The Center for Autism is a residential campus that ministers to students ages 7-22 with severe autism. Students in this program typically have limited verbal and self-help skills. The primary focus of the Center is to increase communication.

The King’s Daughters & Sons Home
The King’s Daughters & Sons Home was opened March 1, 1908, and celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2008. The Home provides comprehensive nursing and rehabilitation care at the sub-acute, skilled and basic levels of nursing care; they accept Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Administration, private insurance, and private pay.
In 2004, The Home moved from their original home in downtown Memphis into a beautiful new facility in Bartlett, TN. The Home is the 10th largest employer in Bartlett, and the community has accepted them with open arms. Several area churches entertain residents with visitations and singing, and a local middle school comes each Monday to play bingo. The Home is so fortunate to have many wonderful, working Circle volunteers from the Memphis City/Shelby County Union who help to bring joy and companionship to its many residents.
