Meet The Relatives

Meet The Relatives is a free tour offered to our supporters the first Wednesday of every month. Guest will hear directly from leadership and staff, take a tour of the facilities, and hear how we are guiding our youth in crisis towards safety and independence.

The event lasts one hour, and visitors are not asked to contribute financially to the agency’s mission. The goal is to share with supporters the scope of the challenges facing our community, and how the The Relatives is making a difference in the lives of children and families.

We invite you to view our upcoming dates and to register for the event. Please note that registration is required for attendance.

Volunteer Orientation

Last year we served over 5,000 youth in crisis.  As we continue to grow, we are always looking for volunteers to help make our programs a success.  On the third Wednesday of every month we invite all interested volunteers to come to a one hour orientation to learn more about the youth we serve and volunteer opportunities and expectations.

If you have questions before registering for orientation please contact Christina Nunez at 704.501.8258 or
