The King's Daughters Home

 

 

DO YOU WANT TO BE ON YOUR OWN BUT NOT ALONE?

The King's Daughters Home, founded in 1891, is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian boarding home for women. Its purpose is to provide comfortable, affordable living accommodations to women who are in the Bangor area to further their education or start a career.  It serves as a stepping stone to young women as they leave the safety and security of their family home and move toward self-sufficiency and independence.  KDH provides students with a reasonably priced alternative to dormitory living and offers caring and encouragement from a married couple who serve as Resident Directors. 

The home is governed by a Board of Managers consisting of representatives from each of the 12 churches that existed in Bangor in 1891. It is the mission of the Board to provide a stable environment where each resident is treated with kindness, courtesy, and respect based on the principles of the Christian faith.

Life At The King's Daughters Home

As you enter the foyer at The Kings' Daughters Home, you are greeted by the classic elegance of the winding Victorian staircase and the spacious living room with its two marble fireplaces and antique furniture. However, very quickly one senses that this carefully maintained 1865 Victorian home is tempered with a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. At one end of the living room, a small group may be at the piano while at the other end, a group talk or discussion may be going on. The spacious kitchen allows the director to prepare well-balanced, home-cooked meals. These are shared twice a day in the large dining room which also becomes a good gathering place for quiet study or friendly fellowship. There are accommodations for nine to twelve young women with options including private and semi-private rooms on the second floor and a large, quaint third floor dormitory style area with

its own bathroom, accommodating four women.
