FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- You may see downtown Fort Wayne lit up blue this weekend, set up by Erin's House to raise awareness for Children's Grief Awareness Day.
Officials say the staff of 13 handles a staggering 850 people from more than 14 counties.
A tough job, but one staff say they see the importance of.
"We see kids as young as three and as old as 30, but we're truly a family program," says Megan Malmquist. "To have a resource like this is a really big deal."
Officials say Indiana ranks 12th in the nation for childhood bereavement, and Erin's House has helped many in Northern Indiana deal with this loss.
"When we opened it really was just this idea that we as adults have a lot of support and thinking about how we process and cope with death just with our life experience," says Malmquist.
