The CALM Center Renovations Revealed
TULSA – Renovations to The CALM Center were revealed in a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday September 25th at 2:15pm. An open house celebration with tours of the facility followed until 5pm. Counseling & Recovery Services’ leadership team, campaign donors, district legislators and project architects cut the ceremonial ribbon.
The renovations were made possible by a two-year capital campaign that successfully raised 1.3 million in generous contributions from local Foundations, Board Members, Companies, Clubs and individuals.
Since 2008, the CALM (Child and Adolescent Life Management) Center has provided immediate crisis support to over 4,000 Oklahoma youth ages 10-17 and their families. It is the only youth crisis stabilization center in eastern Oklahoma. With an increased demand for this critical care, these renovations were needed to create a larger, more welcoming lobby, new multipurpose room for family visits and education, and new offices for admissions and counseling.
