• Tanya Oberlin Becomes Samaritan Youth Services Chief Administrator

    Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan is pleased to announce that Tanya Oberlin has been named Samaritan Youth Services Chief Administrator. She replaces Rick Doud, who is retiring this year.

    In this role, Tanya will oversee the Samaritan Youth Shelter, which provides emergency homeless shelter and transitional housing for teens, as well as Labadie Lofts, which provides permanent housing for young adults aging out of foster care. These ministries are both located on the campus of Good Samaritan Rescue Mission of Bay City.

    “I am excited to continue developing and growing the services we offer to young people in our area,” Tanya said. “With guidance and support, all our youth have the potential to give back and impact our communities in positive ways.”

    Tanya has been with Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan since 2018, and served as Director of the Samaritan Youth Shelter since it opened in 2021. She recently finished her Master of Public Administration degree at Saginaw Valley State University.
