(WXYZ) - A non-profit organization that helps struggling teens is in need of help after a break-in at the outreach center.
"Just hearing about it eats you up inside," says Olivia Horn.
She is talking about the damage done to the place that has been like a second home for her - the Eastside Teen Outreach in Eastpointe.
She's 21 years old now and in college, but starting going to the Eastside Teen Outreach at age 14.
"I was struggling with depression when i first came here. I was immediately surrounded by acceptance and support," she says.
But now, it's the center looking for support after someone broke in through the front door earlier this week.
"It was a mess. Glass just shattered everywhere." says Doug Trocino, co-founder of the Eastside Teen Outreach.
"The office door was smashed through. They went through the drawers, the closet. It looks like they were looking for money," says Deena Trocino, co-founder of the Eastside Teen Outreach.
The Trocino's founded the non-profit organization in 2008 to help troubled teens, but now having to pay at least one thousand dollars to cover the damage could be devastating.
"It's the middle of August and we don't know how we're going to pay the rent for September and
add in an unexpected cost like this and it could close our doors," says Doug Trocino.
"We're a strugging non-profit helping 200 struggling teens," says Deena Trocino.
The Trocino's say nothing was missing from the center, but the damage has been done.
They're hoping to get donations to help fix the damage so they can continue serving the kids who need them.
They're having a fundraising dinner on Saturday, August 17 at 6 p.m.
