Crisis Hotline(704) 377-0602


Our mission: The Relatives keeps kids safe, families together, and prepares youth and young adults to be healthy, productive, engaged members of the community.

"The children’s defense attorneys at Council for Children’s Rights were recently praising The Relatives’ Crisis Shelter. Many of our children go to the Crisis Shelter when they need a safe and supportive place for a short time. Too often, people in the community, including some people who are supposed to help them, label our children as "bad kids" and treat them as a burden to shed. But the staff at The Relatives Crisis Shelter welcomes our children and helps them thrive as they are learning a better path forward. The Relatives’ Crisis Shelter serves as a vital link in the network of community partners providing our children with the positive relationships they need, to realize the future they deserve."
