    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runimeaway 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 you are not alone,
    One option you could consider would be speaking with a school counselor about what is going on at home. Sometimes speaking with an adult can help offer support and help with options and resources. We are not legal experts but do have some information. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you it is a possibility that you could be brought back home. If running away is your best option, you could always give us a call and we can try and find you somewhere to stay.
    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!
    NRS

    Thanks for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. You made a great first step to finding the help that you may need. It sounds like you are going through a lot and the people around you are not being supportive. You deserve to be treated with respect, to experience acceptance and to feel safe.

    We want you to know that you are strong for having gone through so much already. It is perfectly okay to deviate from what others or the common population believe to be “normal”. You’re bravery and resilience is so admirable. You are so strong for having gone through so much without having the acceptance that you do deserve for just being you. Remember that you are not alone. If you ever want to talk more about what you are experiencing or get additional support we are here 24/7 at 1800-RUNAWAY or our live chat service. The GLBT National Hotline at 1888-843-4564 is another option to gain great support from those that are familiar with the issues and experiences of those that are also a part of the LGBTQ community. You can access their website link bellow to utilize all the other possibly useful resources they have to offer: http://www.glbthotline.org/

    You mentioned that you were considering the options that may be best for you. By all means, if you do fear for your safety either now or in the future, do not hesitate to take the necessary steps to regain your safety. This may mean calling the authorities or possibly reporting the things you may be experiencing. Other options to think about may be other family members, friends, or a trusted adults that would be able to provide you with support or a safe place to stay. It is great that you thinking ahead. Should you feel like leaving home is best, it may be a good idea to think about how you will provide necessities for yourself such as food, clothing, showers, healthcare and other basic needs. You may want to also consider how your parent’s will react to you leaving without permission. We are not legal experts here, but typically as a minor (under the age of 1 you need permission from your parents to leave home. It is not illegal to runaway, but it would mean that your parents could file a runaway report with the police. This is usually done in an effort to try to return you home as the police are required to do so.

    If you can give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or reach out through Live Chat at www.1800runuaway.org. We can try to find some youth shelters that may be near your city and state by utilizing our database of resources. We can also try to call out to shelters with you or on your behalf to advocate for you. Some other great resources are as follows:
    Trans Lifeline: 877-565-8860; https://www.translifeline.org/
    Trevor Project: 1-866-488-7386; text “START” to 678678; chat at https://www.thetrevorproject.org/

    Hope to hear from you soon. Stay safe.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

    You mentioned some things about mom and uncle hitting you and it raises concern for your safety and well-being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are currently at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering. It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Stay safe,
    NRS

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us. You and your safety are our top priority here at NRS, and we are happy to help you through this. You are not alone! Looking out for your well-being and asking for help shows you are a very brave person.

    There are many different shelters and transitional living programs in the U.S., and they each have their own qualifications for people who can access them. As far as school goes, it would be best to contact the shelter or your school to talk about different enrollment options while you’re living there.

    You also mentioned that you may be kicked out of your home soon, which can be considered neglect. If you would like to file a neglect report you can contact the Childhelp hotline at 800-422-4453, and they can help walk you through the steps of the report. We can also file a report on your behalf if this is an option you are interested in.

    We’d like to encourage you to reach out to us by calling (800-786-2929) or live chatting us if you’d like to get more specific information about shelters and other resources in your area. We are open 24/7 and are always here to help.

    Thank you again for contacting us, and stay safe.

    As a legal adult, 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 parents 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. We are here to listen and help however we can.

    I’m 18 and everyday my boyfriend makes me feel worse and worse about myself. He tells me I’m disgusting and argued with me and checks out every other female that walks by. I’m so tired of feeling ugly and hating myself, I used to love myself. I’ve been depending on him a lot financially since COVID bc I have stomach problems and my doctors are pretty sure it’s an autoimmune disease. I don’t have my car, or money, or a phone on my own plan. But I really just want to go. I can’t keep putting up with this, but I have no idea what I should do.
