A New Home For Healing:
The Relocation Campaign
After years of planning, consideration, and support from the Calm Waters board, we are moving the Calm Waters Center to a new location at 501 N. Walker near Midtown in Oklahoma City. The move will take place throughout November 2020 and there are many sponsorship opportunities available!
Volunteer for a Support Group
Co-facilitating a Calm Waters grief or divorce support group is an immensely rewarding experience that can foster healing change in the lives of others. Our support group facilitators work with children ages 3-18 years of age and their guardians. An in-house clinician remains on-site during all support group sessions. Training is required before a potential Support Group Facilitator may begin leading support groups.
