Calm Waters Has Moved!
New Address as of November 1, 2020 | 501 N. Walker, Suite 140 | Oklahoma City, OK 73102
After years of planning, consideration, and support from the Calm Waters board, we moved Calm Waters Center to a new physical location at 501 N. Walker near Midtown in Oklahoma City.
Moving made sense for the following reasons:
- MORE SPACE
The need for our services is growing at a rapid pace, with more and more families desperate to attend our support groups. In fact, last year alone, we served 25% more individuals! In order to meet this demand, it is imperative we have more support group and child therapy rooms. Our new space provides us nearly 1,000 more square feet to offer additional families the opportunity to heal from their loss.
- BE MORE CENTRALLY LOCATED
Our new building is near the heart of Oklahoma City and is accessible by every major highway. Based on a recent scattergram, which identified where our clients travel from, we recognized how important it is to be accessible to people coming from south Oklahoma City, to Edmond, and as far as Yukon and Choctaw.
- MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARTNERSHIP
We’re excited to be launching new formal partnerships with sister agencies in the community, including most recently with Pivot, training their staff on our grief theory curriculum and equipping them with the tools to provide Calm Waters support groups to their clients. The location of our new offices will open additional doors of opportunity to partner with other agencies near the Corridor of Hope and downtown, allowing us to reach even more children and families.
We are inviting supporters to be a part of Calm Waters’ “New Home for Healing” relocation giving campaign, which provides special opportunities for sponsorship or the option to name a room in tribute of a loved one.
