Who We Support
Under the Big Top 2023
Calm Waters Center for Children and Families
Award Date: January 30, 2023
Calm Waters provides free center-based grief support groups, school-based support groups, and counseling services to children and families. Support groups at the center serve the whole family - adults and children ages 3-18, who have experienced loss due to death, divorce, infant loss, and anticipatory loss. Student support groups are provided to students, pre-K through 12th grade, dealing with death, divorce, deployment, deportation, incarceration, child welfare, and adoptive/foster care. The Under the Big Top event serves as the organization's largest fundraiser of the year providing critical funds which directly benefit support programs and services.
