The CALM Center is a 24/7 facility serving youth ages 10-17 in a behavioral, emotional or substance abuse crisis. Youth often arrive with only the clothes that they are wearing.
The CALM Center provides behavioral health treatment during a seven-day stay. Youth need changes of clothes, toiletries, bedding, towels, books and games to make their stay more comfortable.
The CALM Center receives and greatly appreciates support from a variety of individuals, groups and foundations in the community. Contact Development Director Taylor Davis at 918.392.5809 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your gift.
