Partner with The Relatives and Provide a Safe Place for Youth

The Relatives is the Safe Place agency for Mecklenburg County and began partnering with National Safe Place in 1988 to create a local network of businesses, churches, schools, transportation services, and community locations that were willing to post Safe Place signs and identify as a place for youth in crisis to get help. Any child or teen can ask for help at a Safe Place location and be connected to the Youth Crisis Center. The Relatives uses the Safe Place program to extend its reach to more youth, and it gives youth-friendly locations the opportunity to share in creating a community where youth have easy access to safety when they need it.

Annual dues are $100 for each non-profit location and $200 for each for profit location. Partner benefits include:

  • Site training for all employees
  • Large exterior aluminum Safe Place sign
  • Safe Place decal for glass door/window
  • Laminated procedures sheet
  • TXT4Help cards
  • Invitation to partner appreciation and open house events
  • Use of The Relatives and National Safe Place logos on company website and publications
  • Promotion  on The Relatives website and during The Relatives Safe Place Week
  • Benefit of supporting youth in a local initiative
