Each Friday night in Knoxville’s Old City, Lost Sheep volunteers intervene to help young people for whom a “good time” has gone too far. Between 11:00 pm. to 4:00 am, volunteers offer a safe place, food, coffee, prayer, and an opportunity to sober up before driving home.
If needed, a call to a friend or family member, or a taxi cab, gets them safely home. In case of emergency, volunteers are alert to call an ambulance, when an overdose of alcohol or drugs is involved. Lost Sheep has built relationships with many who frequent Old City night clubs. If someone is in trouble, they know where to come for help.
