TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With crime top of mind in the city, communities are working together in hopes of ending the problem.

With all of the shootings, stabbings, and break ins happening throughout Tallahassee. Serenity wants people to share their experiences and think of ways to save their communities.

"You're waking up and you're hearing that friends may have been a part of stabbing or a part of a shooting. You worry," said Michael Nazareth, the owner of Serenity. "We want to do what we can to have some affirmative action in helping create a safer community. Especially in the one that we're investing in."
