The West Virginia Family Grief Center is one of the only programs like it in the nation, and the only of its kind in West Virginia.
It held its annual fundraiser which is a silent and live auction. This is to assist the non-profit so it can help people with the programs it provides.
"A lot of times we're dealing with children that have lost parents. We meet every Thursday. We have different civic and church groups for us," said Craig Falkenstien, President of the Board of WV Family Grief Center. "We divide the kids into age appropriate groups. This is the annual event to kind of keep things going. We have those events and an additional event this year."
That additional program will help families coping with an illness.
