Health and Safety 

The health, wellness, and safety of the youth we serve is our top priority. Therefore, we kindly ask on-site volunteers to wear a mask when visiting The Relatives.

Due to the Community Mental Health Center (CMS) mandate on vaccinations, all on-site volunteers are required to show proof of vaccination.

Please visit our FAQ page for more information about the vaccine mandate.

Guests will be asked to self-screen when arriving at The Relatives. For self-screen guidelines, please click here.

The Relatives can host a maximum of 4 volunteers indoors and 6 volunteers outdoors at the Crisis Center at one time. For family or group volunteer opportunities at the Crisis Center, please contact Volunteer Engagement Officer, Redia Baxter, at rbaxter@therelatives.org

The Relatives Resource Center can host a maximum of 20 volunteers at one time.
