Charlotte Lankard Giving Society

One quiet night over 27 years ago, a precious 10 year old boy named Jason lost his dad, tragically leaving him without the father he adored.
His mom, raising her children alone, made hundreds of phone calls across the community to find a support group of other children whose parents had also died.
Unfortunately, nothing existed. No one was able to help her until Charlotte Lankard, a counselor with INTEGRIS Baptist Hospital, answered her call.

From there, Calm Waters was born, providing a safe place for thousands of children and families to seek support after a loss, whether due to death or divorce.

Because of Charlotte’s leadership, Calm Waters is honored to introduce the Charlotte Lankard Giving Society,  exclusively recognizing individuals who contribute $1,000 or more a year and corporations who donate $5,000 or more a year in support of Calm Waters life-changing programs.
