ELKHART — A non-profit group that provides programs for inner city kids is recovering from a recent break-in and burglary. The break-in caused thousands of dollars in damage and stolen items. But, some good Samaritans are now pitching in to help the agency bounce back. “What started out as a tragedy has really ended up being an incredible blessing,” said Darren Peterson, executive director of Lifeline Youth for Christ. Police have arrested three teenagers for breaking into the Life Line for Christ offices last month. Officers say they kicked in doors and ransacked offices. Heather Klepinger came into the office the day after it happened. She noticed something wasn’t quite right. “When I went to unlock her door, there was wood all over the floor and that’s when I noticed several things seemed to be missing in her office,” said Klepinger, executive assistant for Lifeline. Police say they stole computer equipment, a server, a projector, a printer, video game systems and other things. All told, more than $8,000 worth of damage and stolen items. Since the break-in, the organization has received an outpouring of support from area businesses, churches and other agencies that stepped in to make repairs for free and helped clean up the aftermath. A computer technician came over from the youth organization, The Crossings, to get the computer gear back in order. “Indiana Securities came in and helped us put a securities system in. Steve Youngblood from Steve’s Locksmith came in and donated his time to re-key our locks,” said Darren. “We’ve had donors who have volunteered to pay for deductibles.” An area church also got involved. “Nappanee Missionary sent their first serve crew over here and helped clean up,” he said. Elkhart Police also pitched in. Several officers had been members in their younger years. After getting to know some of the teens there, they took up a collection to send over 20 youngsters to a spring break conference in New Orleans. “God has provided in an amazing way and met our needs,” said Darren. One of the teenagers police arrested had been a member of "Youth for Christ" since the 4th grade. All three face felony burglary charges.
