About Us - Quiet Waters Outreach, 21 Mar 2015 [cached]
Steve Ristow, Founder and Executive Director of QWO Steve Ristow (pictured right), the founder and Executive Director of QWO, has a close family relative with Fetal Alcohol Effects. Steve has first-hand experience with the overwhelming responsibility of caring for someone with a mental disability, as well as the imminent need for spiritual, emotional, mental and physical restoration. It was this experience that planted the seed that would become QWO.
With a desire to help families like his own, Steve received his Bachelor's of Psychology from Pepperdine University in 1993. Steve also has a Master's of Christian Studies from George Fox University. His Master Thesis, "Respite Care: A Comprehensive Study on the Need for Respite Care for Families and Caregivers of Individuals with Mental Retardation and/or Developmental Disabilities," began the formation of QWO.

"Disgust," said Steve Ristow, when asked about his first reaction to hearing about the story.
Ristow is executive director of Quiet Waters Outreach, a Tigard facility that specializes in helping the developmentally disabled and their families.
"It's heartbreaking to me that anyone would take advantage of this special and vulnerable population," he said.
"They're quick to trust other people," added Ristow.
