The CALM Center’s renovation capital campaign is less than $10,000 from its $1.3 million goal. We need your help to complete funding for this project.
The CALM Center, 6126 E. 32nd Place, a state leader in children’s crisis care, has served well over 4,000 children and families and operated around the clock since 2008. It is eastern Oklahoma’s only crisis stabilization center for youth and one of only three in the state, filling the gap between outpatient care and inpatient/residential care. Demand has put a strain on the current facility and its ability to best serve children and their families.
Please give to help us reach our goal:
Leaving a child for seven days of treatment is a difficult decision. A welcoming, peaceful environment helps ease anxiety for parents/guardians. Planned renovations will create a larger, more welcoming lobby, new multipurpose room for family visits and education, and two new offices for admissions and counseling.
Using the Sanctuary Model of care, CALM Center results are substantial. Depression symptoms drop by 45 percent and anxiety symptoms decrease by 53 percent. With most connected to further outpatient care, only 6 percent of clients are discharged to a higher level of care.
Parents and children say the CALM Center saves and changes lives. Here are just two comments:
“I got the help I needed. This place is amazing. I can finally be happy.”
“Absolutely helped my son with his anger issues. I would recommend to anyone who needs help or just a break.”
Most private insurance does not cover the cost of CALM Center treatment. Some children’s care is funded through either the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services or the Oklahoma Health Care Authority’s SoonerCare. Others are served due to generous individual and foundation donations. No child is turned away due to inability to pay. Families also do not leave with a bill thanks to the community’s generous support.
The CALM Center is part of Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma, a nonprofit community mental health center founded in 1982 that provides mental health and substance abuse services to all ages.
