    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us for help. We are sorry to hear that you are going through so much right now. We are here to listen and help in any way that we can. It sounds like you would like to run away from home and live with your sister. We are not legal experts, but we can help with some general information. If you leave your home or move out without permission from your legal guardian, they can call the cops and report you as a runaway. The police will search for you and make you go back home. Your sister, or anyone who takes you in, could get into trouble for harboring a runaway. If you need to talk or you would like to go over your options and get resources, don't hesitate to give us a call any time 24/7. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out to us. We're so sorry about what you're going through at home. It's definitely not easy to live in a place where you're being bullied and not cared for the way you should be. We understand how that must make you feel pretty misunderstood and isolated. One option you have is talking to your parents and sibling about the way they make you feel. We know that sounds scary but sometimes talking to people and being very open with them can really help. You can also talk to a friend or school counselor about the way you're feeling. It might be good for you to talk to someone so you can get some of that stress off your shoulders.

    We wish you the best of luck with everything! If you want to talk to us about what you're going through please feel free to reach out to us. You can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY, we are 24/7 so someone will always be here to answer and help you in the best way we can.

    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. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you.

    We’re sorry to hear about your living situation at home, you deserve to be treated well. You may be able to report any mistreatment to Child Protective Services. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this and you can contact us through our phone line or chat service to discuss other options in detail. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Be safe,
    NRS
