Calm Waters is Seeking Volunteers

In May 2011 we published a story on Calm Waters – a free grief support center for children and families. Today, they are needing our help. 

Waters is immediately seeking qualified adults who are compassionate, have the
ability to listen and enjoy working with children and adults to co-facilitate
small support groups. 

Calm Waters offers
a safe and nurturing environment for children and families where grief can be
addressed and true healing can begin. Volunteers are essential in providing
this much needed service. The overall volunteer experience is not only
meaningful and rewarding, but also provides an opportunity to join in the
spirit of giving back to the community by your donation of time and support.
 “It doesn’t take professional expertise to be a Calm Waters’ volunteer,”
said Maribeth Govin, Calm Waters’
Program Director.  “Our wonderful volunteers come from all walks of
life.  We have bankers, teachers, nurses and retirees.  Calm Waters
has provided grief support groups in our community for almost twenty years due
to our dedicated volunteers.”

facilitator training will be conducted at the Calm Waters
Center, 4334 NW
Expressway, Suite 101
on August 19 (6 p.m.-9 p.m.) and August 20 (9 a.m.-1 p.m).  

In order to become
a volunteer, please visit and submit your
application by August 12.  For more information, please contact Maribeth
at 405.841.4800.
