Youth Links
Triage Center
Wish List
Youth Links is an innovative program for youth ages 10-18 who have been found to be delinquent
or who are status offenders. It is a “triage” center in that it provides assessments and short-term
services which help youth re-enter or remain in the community safely. The goal is to provide
additional structure that helps each youth to sustain his/her current placement, or to assist the
guardian in finding the most appropriate level of care. At the same time, encouragement with
the family is provided. The dual focus on youth and family better prepares the youth’s return to a
constructive lifestyle. As always, thank you for your donation to Heartland Family Service.
