Review for Calm Waters Center for Children and Families Inc, Ok City, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was one of the founders of Calm Waters over 21 years ago after the death of my husband. At the time I was looking for help for my son after his Dad died. We were part of the first grief group and after that I facilitated the adult grief groups for 10 years until my job changed to evenings. It is a program I believe in and is certainly needed. I am in awe of the continual growth of Calm Waters to meet the ever changing needs of the children of the Oklahoma City area whether its due to recent tornadoes, the Murrah Building Bombing to children of deployment or incarceration . The staff at Calm Waters sees a need and figures out how to meet that need. They help a tremendous number of families each year with the dedication of the staff and volunteers. I loved my years as a volunteer and continue to support them financially and when ever they ask. I have referred many families there and all have later told me how much Calm Waters has helped .

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

build them a Calm Waters House that would be large enough to totally meet their space needs!
