Relative pronoun to collective noun as "family" or "group"

anita 160 9
Hi, there! I'd like to know what's the best relative pronoun when referring to "family" or "group", such as:
It is her family which/who helps her most.
This is the group which/who you need to belong to.
Hope you can help me.
Thank you so.

In these cases, Anita, I actually prefer "that":

It's her family that helps her the most.
This is the group that you need to belong to.

Usage of who, which, that can be a little complex, and sometimes you have to pay attention to how it will sound, but there is a useful guideline at http://englishplus.com/grammar/00000255.htm.
