Erin’s House for Grieving Children New Facility
Fort Wayne, Indiana


A new home for Erin’s House—a mourning shelter for children and families who have lost a loved one—opened  fall of 2013 in northeastern Fort Wayne.


This new 13,545 sf building nearly doubled the organization’s space. As they provide services for a wide age range of people, the spaces in this facility needed to be flexible, with

  • A large common room for large or small group activities,
  • Age appropriate activity rooms,
  • A quiet room,
  • Recreation room,
  • Open kitchen,
  • Offices and training/conference room, and
  • Deep porches and outdoor play area.


This new location provides a much more visible, accessible facility where Erin’s House can continue to build and nurture families as they have done for the past twenty years.
