ABOUT THE 5TH CORNER

THE 5TH CORNER WAS A VISION THAT STEMMED FROM CONVERSATIONS OF SALINE BUSINESSES, RESIDENTS, AND THE SCHOOLS. IN 2012, THE SALINE COMMUNITY SAW THE NEED FOR A TEEN CENTER IN THE COMMUNITY. THE SALINE COMMUNITY CHURCH OFFERED THEIR SPACE AS A CENTRAL LOCATION FOR YOUTH FROM ALL OVER WASHTENAW COUNTY TO ACCESS. THE FIFTH CORNER WAS ESTABLISHED AS A 501-C3 ORGANIZATION AND HAS BEEN ABLE TO OFFER FREE SERVICES TO MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL AGED YOUTH EVER SINCE.
