Crisis Hotline(704) 377-0602

One of the things I’ve missed most over the past two-years has been welcoming guests into our space and sharing The Relatives’ work with them first-hand. While I am proud to say The Relatives never closed its doors to youth and young adults in crisis, we have had to limit the number of on-site visitors and volunteers.

I am excited to announce we’ll be resuming our Meet The Relatives Mission Tours beginning next month! I love giving Relatives, like you, a hands-on look at our programs and sharing truly inspiring stories from the youth and young adults we serve.

I hope you will join me and a few of my Relatives colleagues for a tour. I would love to show you all the amazing work your support makes possible.

You can RSVP here to join me for a Meet The Relatives tour. Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone in your life you feel would like to be a Relative to youth in crisis.

Thank you for being a Relative.

Executive Director


Farewell to a Very Special Relative

Over the past decade, Spencer Guthery has been an integral and invaluable member of The Relatives family. Spencer began her journey with The Relatives as a volunteer, taking her two sons to the Crisis Center on East Blvd. and making dinner with the kids. Her commitment to our youth led to a part-time position, then to leading The Relatives’ philanthropy team, and successfully spearheading the campaign to raise the funds for our new Resource Center.

Spencer has worked tirelessly over the past 10 years to connect the right resources to our mission and to the kids we serve. Now, Spencer will be taking a well-deserved break to do some traveling and spend time with family.

“I have treasured my time at The Relatives and will always have a special place in my heart for the youth we serve. Although I’m taking a break, I won’t be far – I’m a Relative for life!” – Spencer Guthery

The Relatives will be forever grateful for Spencer’s dedication and the incredible impact she has made on our mission.
