Oklahoma City, OK, January 19 – Calm Waters Center for Children and Families, the only grief center in central Oklahoma offering free grief support services to children and families, has moved all operations to 501 North Walker, Suite 140, Oklahoma City, in response to the growing demand for grief-related support services in the community.

A virtual ribbon cutting will be held Friday, January 22 at 11 a.m. in partnership with the Oklahoma City Chamber and will include a real-time tour of Calm Waters’ new offices with Founders Charlotte Lankard, Gene Rainbolt, Executive Director Erin Engelke and Calm Waters Board Chair Kendra Barnes.

“Calm Waters is proud to be a new member of the downtown Oklahoma City community, providing a more spacious and centrally located office for the thousands of children, teens, and adults we serve each year,” said Erin Engelke, Executive Director of Calm Waters. “We wish so much we could host an in-person ribbon cutting but are grateful for technology and the ability to provide a virtual option with the Oklahoma City Chamber.”

Calm Waters’ new location features 12 individual counseling and group therapy rooms, a welcoming waiting/entry area, and a large community room with a kitchen that serves as both a program and event space.
