    Thank you so much for reaching out through our bulletin boards and being brave enough to tell us your story. It sounds like this is not an easy situation for you to talk about and we are so glad you felt comfortable sharing a little bit about what is going on with you. It’s understandable how you are feeling with everything that has been going on. You mentioned that your older sister’s husband has been sexually abusing you since you were 13. No one ever deserves to be hurt or abused in anyway and we want you to know that you have to right to report what has been happening. It sounds like a really frustrating situation because you have tried to bring it up to your family and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. You have every right to report this situation to child protective services and let them know what it going on. It’s not fair that your family is not stepping in and protecting you from your sister’s husband and what he is doing. Have you ever spoken with anyone outside of your family about these incidences? A friend or even a counselor? We want you to know that if you did decide you wanted to report what is going on that’s something that we can assist you with. While we are a confidential and anonymous service we are also here to advocate for youth and help you come up with options that you may want to look into. We also provided another resource below that also advocates and assists youth who have been in abusive situations.

    Justice for Children

    You also mentioned that because of the abuse and your family not being supportive you are at the point where you are thinking of running away. It’s understandable that with everything going on you are thinking about leaving. If you did decide to leave your home do you have a safe place that you can go? While we are not here to tell you what to do, our main concern is youth safety. If you should want any assistance in working through your situation and talking about options and resources please know that there is always someone here to help. If you would like to speak with someone immediately you can give us a call at our 24 hour crisis hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We also have an online chat that is available from 4:30p to 11:30p CST through our website There is always someone available to provide support, discuss options, and even find local resources for you if needed. As stated before all of our services are completely confidential and anonymous. The only time we would be mandated to report any kind of abuse is if you gave us information such as your name, address, phone number, and the abusers name. Please feel free to reach out to us anytime if you would like to discuss your situation more in depth. Take care and stay safe.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
