Description: The Relatives is Mecklenburg County's only shelter for youth 7-17 who are homeless, have runaway, or are experiencing serious family conflict. The mission of The Relatives is to keep kids safe and families together. Founded in 1974, in the basement of the Dilworth United Methodist Church, The Relatives houses nearly 300 youth per year who have no other safe place to go. Additionally, The Relatives provides walk-in crisis counseling to youth and their families, a 24-hour crisis hotline, and free parenting classes designed to help eliminate the family conflicts which cause family break-ups where youth either run away or are kicked out onto the streets. The Relatives is Mecklenburg County's Safe Place shelter. The agency recruits local businesses, churches, community organizations, and all city transit vehicles to display yellow and black signs bearing the National Safe Place logo to signify the partnership with The Relatives to link children in need to safety.
