Innerlink Runaway Services

This program provides emergency shelter and counseling for youth who have runaway or are potential runaways. The project has a 15 bed facility to house youth ages 10-17 (including minor teen parents with their children) thus keeping them off the streets. Youth can be housed for up to 14 days. The goal is to unite the youth with their family whenever possible. Services are provided in Gratiot, Saginaw, and Tuscola counties.

  • Innerlink was developed in 1973 by a group of concerned citizens who were knowledgeable of the number of youth being lodged in the Juvenile Center for running away and who then organized various professionals in the Saginaw community to provide technical assistance for the structure of the project.
  • Innerlink was planned primarily to divert youth from the juvenile court process and reconcile them with their parents, when possible. Innerlink was originally operated by the Saginaw County Probate Court and in 1978 the program became a division of the SCYPC.
  • Innerlink from the beginning has been a residential facility located in Saginaw.
