Who We Support

Under the Big Top

Calm Waters Center for Children & Families

Award Date: January 4, 2024
Awarded: $5,000

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 to 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.
