    Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you’re in a tough spot right now and it must be difficult feeling like no one cares about you at home. You deserve to be in a supportive and loving environment. Since you are still a minor, your family would have the right to file a runaway report and if the police are able to find you they may return you home. That being said, it’s possible that your local police would not pursue you because you are becoming a legal adult in a little over a month (though we can’t say for sure because we are not legal experts). Another option is to call your local non-emergency police line to ask about their policies anonymously. If you need help doing that, please feel free to reach out to us and we would be happy to call out for you. Another service we offer is conference calling; if you ever need help talking to your family about how you’ve been feeling and what they can do to support you, please feel free to give us a call.
