    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS!

    We are always here to listen and here to help in any way that we can. It can be very frustrating not knowing what to do or what your next step might be from this point on. It’s brave of you to reach out during your time of need. Your safety is important to us and it can be hard to survive while on the run. If you need somewhere to stay, while on the run, we can try to find a runaway shelter for you.

    As far as your question about police tracking your phone, we’re not sure if they will. They most likely can, if your parents/guardians contact your cell phone provider.

    We’re here if you’d like to talk more about your situation. Our safeline is open 24/7. We also have a chatting service via our website, unfortunately, it is not always open. The best way to contact us would be to call in and talk with our trained liners.

    Be well, NRS

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
