My family is super toxic like my mom has a boyfriend who drinks alot and it causes arguments and it is getting stressful for all and i can't handle it anymore and want to live somewhere else is there a place near me that can help. Or do i have to wait till i get enough money myself. (I'm currently working on getting a job)

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS. We appreciate you taking the time to explain a bit about what's been going on at home.

    It sounds like home life is really unhealthy for you, it's understandable that you're wanting to get away from that environment. We are here to help in any way we can. A resource that is always available is, United Way, you just call 211. They are the local non-emergency number and have resources for cab vouchers, local shelters that have space, etc. There are also 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 (employment, school, etc.). They help youth work on their goals, while they're living there. If you're interested in us looking for programs like that in your area, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

    Hopefully, this resource will help you. If you’d like more help brainstorming other options, we’re always here! We are open, 24/7 if you needed us to try to find more resources!

    Best, NRS
