Local Causes to Enhance Lives

The Relatives’ started in 1974 with a Crisis Shelter in the heart of the Dilworth community. For over 43 years that Crisis Shelter has helped youth in our community, ages 7-17, who find themselves needing a safe place to stay because they are homeless, runaway or are in some kind of crisis. In 2010, The Relatives organization initiated a program for the young adult population, many who find themselves in crisis because they have aged out of public systems and have no natural supports. We know 1 in 5 kids aging out of the foster care system will end up homeless. The Relatives’ goal is to prevent this tragedy by offering resources including housing, employment opportunities, education and health and safety resources to young adults ages 16 to 24. By guiding over 5,000 youth and young adults each year towards stability and independence The Relatives is keeping kids safe, families together, and preparing the next generation to be productive, engaged members of the community.
