Daniel, founded in 1884, is the state’s oldest child-serving agency. The nonprofit recently hosted its 135th anniversary celebration on Oct. 17 at the Haskell Company headquarters on the banks of the St. Johns River. With more than 100 Daniel supporters and philanthropic community members gathering to celebrate the importance of their role in Northeast Florida, the evening was a smash for their fundraising initiatives.

Since its humble beginnings, Daniel has expanded to offer a diverse range of programs that serve approximately 3,500 children and families each day. The organization offers abused and emotionally troubled children refuge and counseling, connects kids with foster and adoptive homes, helps homeless teenagers find housing and jobs, and strengthens families.
