      Hello There,

      Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen.

      It sounds like you are going through a difficult time, and we want you to know that you are not alone. Running away is a big decision and because you know your situation best only you are able to decide if running away is best for you. But we can give you some more information to help you make the best informed decision.

      We are not legal experts but if you were to run away your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. We know you mentioned wanting to run away for a while, one option to consider wo uld be to speak with a school counselor about what is going on at home. They would be able to provide you with support and help you explore options and offer you resources. If running away is your best option safety is the top concern. You could see if you could stay with friends or family. We can also help you look for a safe place to go.

      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. Best of luck!

      Hi there,
      Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by forum to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button).
      If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      Be safe,

      Hello there –

      Thank you so much for taking the time out of our day to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. We hope that by helping them and helping you that there are other’s that are scrolling through will get the information that they need.

      It’s hard to talk to just anyone one about what has been going on. From reading your post it sounds like you thinking about leaving home due to the long history of abuse you face in your household by your parents. No one deserves to be treated that way at all. Just know that you always have the right to report any abuse (physical, mental, sexual, or neglect/abandonment) to child protective service in your state or you can talk to us about it. You have rights too.

      Only you know yourself when it’s time to leave home due to it being an unsafe situation. We want you to know that if you do choose to leave home, we hope that you have a plan to stay safe. If you want to talk to us about your options or even find a safe place that you might be able to reach out to for some more local support, you can always give us a call or chat in.

      We certainly want to help you.
