Erin’s House for Grieving Children anticipates over 240 grieving children, teens, and families to converge at their facility this Sunday, December 18th from 1 – 4 p.m.
Holidays can be particularly difficult following the death of a loved one, and while Erin’s House helps families all year long, they provide additional programs to help make the holidays special again for those that are grieving the death of a loved one.
Erin’s House would like to thank the supporters that are making this event exception for the grieving children of our great community: Frontier Communications, Retina Institue of Indiana, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Parkview Physicians Group (Dupont Road), Thrivent Financial and Preferred Auto.
Erin’s House, founded in 1993, was created when a 5-year old Fort Wayne girl named Erin Farragh died unexpectedly in 1989; the subsequent grief her surviving brother and sister experienced inspired the adults in their lives to take this idea and grow it into what it is today. To date, the organization has served more than 17,000 individuals throughout northeast Indiana, and it continues to provide support services for children, teens and their families who have suffered the death of a loved one. As an industry center for excellence, Erin’s House is continually reviewing its programs and services to ensure they are effective for children, teens and their families. All Erin’s House programs and services provided at no cost.
