Administrative/Biographical History

The Atlanta Home for Incurables grew out of the Circle of the King's Daughters and Sons, which was organized in 1893. Their purpose was to help the poor and needy, to minister to the sick, and to care for widows and orphans. The Circle was reorganized in 1901 when it occupied its first house, which was part of the incorporation of the Atlanta Circle of King's Daughters and Sons. In 1904, the organization changed its name to the Home for Incurables Association.
