    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 email 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); www.1800runaway.org (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,
    NRS

    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 at home and with your brother. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.

    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.

    If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon. Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Be safe and stay strong,

    Hello,
    Thanks for reaching out to us. We are so sorry to hear that things at home have gotten so tough. It sounds like would leave if your home if you could. We certainly cannot tell you what to do, but we can share some general info to help you decide whether running away is the right choice for you.

    We are not legal experts, but from what we know, you are allowed to leave home if you are considered a legal adult in your state. If you are considered a minor in your state and you leave without consent, your parent or legal guardian can file a runaway report with your local police department. Although each police department chooses how to handle runaway reports, if they do find a missing youth, they typically bring the youth back to their parent or legal guardian. The best way to find out how your local police might handle a runaway report is to reach out to your local legal aid agency or the non-emergency number for your local police department.

    If you have additional questions, or you just want to talk to someone about what is going on that makes you want to leave, please feel free to reach out to us. We will do our best to support you in staying safe as you explore your options. You can reach us 24/7 by phone at 1.800.RUNAWAY (786-2929) or via chat by visiting us at www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button). We are here to listen, here to help. Stay safe!

    I really appreciate this forum, let me lead with that. And then I’m so sorry for everyone here and if you're wishing to run away I hope you get the best runaway place and meet with the best runaway people. People who treat you way better than how your family treats you, people you'll not have a problem sharing with people who will never betray you or call the cops on you and most importantly have at one point felt the same way you felt and have understood why you have done what you have done. And if you are wishing to commit suicide I hope you get a breakthrough, one so big that even the people who have led you to such a position will swallow their saliva and never lift a tongue to say anything about you ever again. Us young people are always suffering from something and especially if our parents are the problem it’s as if no one can believe you. I’ll share my story another day. But on the bad days I hit walls and I hope to find a way to completely detach from everyone who has ever hurt me including my parents. And no amount of money will bring me back to this home that I am in now. It’s not a wonder to see how when people are old and alone they speak with so much bitterness because they thought the people they hurt will never find a way to flee from them. And most importantly they cannot buy someone with their money because everyone will have already grown up and had their own money.

    Hello –

    Thank you for contacting us here at the National Runaway Safeline. We understand that it takes great courage to reach out. We are sorry to hear about the way you have been treated. No one should have to suffer through the misfortunes you have been forced to deal with. I think it speaks volumes that you are still fighting for a better future for yourself.

    Sometimes it can feel like there is little hope for things to get better in our lives. But reaching out and asking for help is usually the first step towards making things better. It seems like you have a lot of courage to fight through your troubles. It can appear as though everyone is bad, especially when you have suffered so much and had such little help from you parents. However, we can assure you good people are out there. There are countless resources and organizations who are wanting to help you.

    A couple resources that may be helpful are the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 or the Rape Abuse Incest National Network at 1-800-656-4673. You can call them anonymously to learn about the abuse reporting process, or directly report abuse to this line. They are a good resource for talking through your options given what you have gone through and what you deal with at home.

    If you would like to discuss your situation further, there is always someone at the National Runaway Safeline to discuss. We can be reached on our hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or if you are more comfortable we have a chat service as well that is 24/7.

    We hope the information provided helps. Remember we are available 24/7 and can be toll-free reached at the number listed above. We are confidential, anonymous, and non-direct.

    Best Wishes
    ~NRS

    Why are people so selfish? Why are people so mean? It's like they can't even try to have sympathy for someone who has been through so much. No one ACTUALLY cares about you. People are so fake and selfish. They always want praise and are not genuine. I dont understand why God put me on this earth. I was molested by 4 different men from the age of 4 to 7. My parents were always so ignorant to so many things happening in my life. I have had many miscarriages. Not being able to even have children makes me feel more like a piece of crap. It's like honestly, why am I here?? To get molested? To have parents who never understood you and never helped you with your life? To get my Hope's up of being a mom and then have miscarriages? WHY AM I HERE??.....
