The mission of Kaleidoscope is to provide peer support in a safe and understanding environment for children and their families who are grieving the death of a loved one.

A Bit of Background

Established in March of 2006, Kaleidoscope offers grief support to children and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Located in Norman, Oklahoma, home to over 100,000 full-time residents, and less than ten miles south of Oklahoma City, a metropolitan area boasting more than 1.2 million residents, Kaleidoscope is uniquely situated to meet an identified need in its community. As the only provider of bereavement services for children in the community,  Kaleidoscope was established by founder, Suzie Price, after discussions with local teachers, clergy, and school administrators who highlighted a lack of support services available for these grieving children and their families.



The groups are free and meet for eight consecutive weeks on Wednesday nights.

Meet our Partners

The mission of The Dougy Center is to provide support for children, teens, young adults and their families grieving a death, through peer support groups, training and education. Through our National Center for Grieving Children & Families, we provide support and training locally, nationally and internationally to individuals and organizations seeking to assist grieving children.

The WARM Place is an agency based in Fort Worth, Texas that provides peer-support groups for children and their families after the death of a loved one. Our program, led by trained volunteers, provides a safe environment for children to express feelings and emotions as well as the opportunity to meet with children and families who are experiencing situations similar to their own.

Calm Waters began in 1992 by INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center. Since then, we have expanded to provide support groups for families impacted by community disasters, such as the 1995 Murrah Building bombing and May 2013 tornadoes. Calm Waters currently serves more than 2,500 students and families annually and has provided services to more than 27,000 individuals.
