  • i have no money, no home, no family, no hope

    I'm about to turn 18 and my mother is going to kick me out in August. My father won't take me in because it will look bad since he already has a wife and child. I have no friends that would help if they knew about the situation. I have no money in my account, not even a year job experience, no education past high school, etc, etc. This is a crucial time in my life and I have no one but God to help me out. Everywhere I go I thrive, but my mom was the only person to help me. I am a gifted student, a team player, etc, but my mom is jilted because of my older siblings and has become less and less receptive when we argue. This is the crucial time where my friends and, had my mom not changed, i would be jetting off to college to start anew, but now I'm stranded and confused. I don't have a driver's license, no car, no way to go anywhere or start. If anyone could please help me with this, it would be appreciated.

    Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline.

    We are sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time. It can be hard to move out when you feel that you don't have any support to do so. Some options you could consider would be programs like Job Corps and AmeriCorps. They are programs for young adults where you are provided food and housing and they also help you develop life skills and build your resume with work experience. You can look more into their programs at and

    Another option would be looking into transitional housing. Transitional Living Programs (TLP'S) often provide things like housing, employment aid and counseling for young adults. You would want to contact them and inquire about their services and their openings. If you give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 we could look up ones in your area.
