      Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like you are having a difficult time trying to move out due to your grandma and your mom. That must be very frustrating to deal with. Here at NRS, we truly want to be a support for you during this difficult transition.

      Since you are now 18, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. 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. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your mom for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. 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. If you call or chat us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or www.1800runaway.org we can look to see if there are any TLPs near your area. We are here to listen and help however we can.

      Please do not hesitate to call or chat if you have questions, need resources, or need to talk. We can explore your situation, go over all your options, and come up with a plan and resources to deal with your situation over the phone or on live chat.

      We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

      -NRS

It sounds like you are not sure what to do between leaving home and moving in with your boyfriend, still attending school and not wanting to hurt your family situation. It’s okay to examine things thoroughly and not jumping into a decision. This is your life so you are doing a good job by weighing your options.
      Some things to consider might be some of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave (It sounds like you are worried about losing communication with them).

          Hello! You’ve taken a big step in reaching out for help, and your efforts do not go unnoticed.
          To begin with, you mentioned that you want to move out of your house, but your guardians have refused. You’re really brave for wanting to take such a big mile stone in your life! Unfortunately we aren’t legal experts, but in most states anyone under 18 is still considered a minor. You may want to take into consideration that you may need to be at least 18 years of age to be considered an adult in your county/ state, in order to, sign documentation under your name, or do any further legal proceedings.
          Furthermore, you also said that you want to move out with your boyfriend, and have a steady income coming in for now. An option to explore would be to sit down with your boyfriend, and see if he is wanting to move in together. If so, you guys can come up with a plan on how you will save enough money to move on and pay rent. You may also have a heart to heart with your aunt and uncle, and make them aware of a future plans you may have when you turn 18.
          Than you once again for reaching out! You’re really brave for wanting to have a strategic plan in place in taking the next big step of moving out. Please do come back to chat or call us any time at (800)-RUNAWAY (786-2929) if you would like to talk. 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. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.We are sorry to hear that you don’t have many resources to be able to move once you turn 18. One thing we can do to help you find resources is give you a referral to a Transitional Housing program. These programs help youth get jobs, get shelter, and continue education. They are usually a good resource to help yourself get back on your feet. However we would need to get more information from you. You can do this by using our chat option or phone call line as we do not respond to email and forums after we have replied once. 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 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
          We hope to hear from you soon.
          Be safe, NRS
