  • I'm 23 and my mom is going to kick me out of the house...I have nowhere to go

    My family can't and won't take me in - they side with my mom. I have friends who may be able to take me in, but not on short notice, and not for long...and they live 45 minutes away from where I live. I don't have a job, and I only have about $150...I don't know what to do.

    Hello there,

    It sounds like you’re going through a rough time and are presently being kicked out of your mother’s home. We imagine it is stressful to not know where you are going to be living. We do have some adult housing resources in our database, so if we know your city/state we can do a more thorough search. In the meantime, you could check out United Way/211. http://www.211.org/ Not all, but many cities/states offer 211 which is social service directory and many offer their databases online.

    There is also Homeless Shelter Directory too. http://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org/ They offer a starting point while searching for shelters; all you have to do is enter your city/state. Hopefully that gives you a start and we wish you the best of luck.

    You can also contact us directly either by calling us 24/7 AT 1-800-RUNWAY (786-2929). Or, we offer Live Chat every day from 4:30 to 11:30pm. Simply click on the red Live Chat button on our home page.

            Hello,
            Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

            We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We are not legal experts but in general at 17 it may be illegal for your parent’s to do this. We understand how upsetting this must be for you. You might consider contacting the non-emergency number to your local police department for more inforrmation on the law.
            We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, 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 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
            We hope to hear from you soon.

            Take care,
            NRS

                Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like you are in a difficult situation needing to move out of your mom's house with your sister, but not having the finances to do. It's clear that the stress has really taken a toll on you. Here at NRS, we truly want to be a support for you during this difficult time.

                Unfortunately, our database is limited with adult resources, so we may or may not have a resource in our database that could help house both you and your sister. Please call or chat us: 1-800-RUNAWAY or www.1800runaway.org if you would like us to see what resources we have in your area. You might also reach out to 2-1-1 by calling that 3 digit number or going to www.211.org. They are the United Way information and referral line to all the local shelter and permanent housing resources for adults. You might also ask them if they have any employment assistance programs in the area.

                Again, please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you would like us to look for resources. We truly wish you and your sister the best of luck,

                NRS

              I'm 18 and just started college, very unwillingly. I have a very strong work ethic but I have no real desire to go to college, but my step-mom's rule is if you don't go to college you cannot live at the house. I am already dreading being forced to go to college, and I need out but I do not have a job yet cause I haven't been hired and I am taking my driving test on September 19th but I do not think my dad would allow me to have my car unless I stay in college.

                Hi there, thanks for reaching out today.

                Sounds like you are understandably not wanting to go to college, but your stepmom has made it a rule that you have to go while living in the house. That's really commendably that you have the awareness about what you want. Here at NRS, we truly want to be a support for you during this difficult time.

                As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. But unfortunately, your former guardians can legally force you to leave if you are not wanting to follow their house rules. We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Since you have been unable to get a job or have reliable transportation so far, you might try to reach out to your informal supports like friends and extended family to see if you can stay with them while you get on your feet. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. Please call or chat us if you would like us to look for resources in your area: 1-800-RUNAWAY or www.1800runaway.org.

                We are here to listen and help however we can so do not hesitate to reach out.

                Best,

                NRS
