NASHVILLE, Tenn. – For years the local non-profit, “Youth Encouragement Services” has worked to assist kids throughout the city. Now they need a bit of assistance from the police.
Vandals have hit their facility numerous times over the last few months. The building which is located in the Woodbine area has been broken into and equipment has been stolen.
The latest problem happened this week and could have put lives in jeopardy. Someone actually shot out the windows of the organizations shuttle bus. At least one of the bullets went inside the facility.
“On the inside, on the other side of this door is a brick wall where our students are everyday. For over 50 years we’ve been a positive influence on students in this community and we want them to continue to have a safe haven to come to each and every day,” said operations manager Samantha Johnson.
Administrators with the non-profit said it will potentially cost them a couple thousand dollars to repair the vandalism from this latest incident.
