Calm Waters has helped thousands of children in their 25 years. Started as an organization to help children and families facing grief from the death of a loved one, it has grown to help children and ...families facing grief from divorce and even incarceration.

The beauty of this program is that it helps children in age appropriate groups so it meets them where they are developmentally. The other wonderful thing is that parents/guardians meet in groups as well, and while they get help with their own grief they truly get help with parenting their children through the grief. Because of this the children get the support from their group and knowing other children who are facing similar circumstances but also get help at home from adults who learn how to do that in a positive way.

Calm Waters is an amazing organization. For anyone traveling the road called Grief, this is a place to go where the waters are calm. Each week you spend time with others facing the same challenges a...nd hurts you have/are facing. My kids were begging me to go every week. Excellent program. See More

I quote from their facebook profile. "Calm Waters is a nonprofit agency that provides FREE grief and divorce support groups to children in Oklahoma, ages 3 through 18, their parents and caregivers, an...d to young adults."

I have never met a nonprofit that 1. took your money BEFORE rendering any service. 2. refused to give your money back if service couldn't be completed.
