  • Getting kicked out

    Okay so I'm 19 in a community college to get my general education classes done before I go off to another college I go full time and work part time my dad doesn't work due to his back injury. Whenever I come home from work or school he always seems to take all of his stress out on me and yell. I always ask why he's yelling and he said you started it when I didn't he threatens to kick me out all the time and a couple months ago he grabbed your arm and literally threw me out of the house. I don't have any friends since they all went to different schools so if he ever does it again I have no where to go and I just feel helpless I'm hoping someone can help?

    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    It’s too bad that your father seems to be suffering not only from a back injury but also stress.
    That being said it’s not fair that you should bear the weight of his misfortunes with being yelled and threatened with homelessness. You don’t deserve that.
    It must be frustrating for you to feel this way. Is there any family you might be able to make some living arrangement with?
    Now might be a time to consider looking for options of emergency shelter just in case he should make good on his threat.
    We might be able to help you with that.

    We can try and help locate emergency shelters in your area.
    Would you like that? If you would like this information please give us a call at: 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or go to our website for our NRS live chat.

    Another option might be to check in with the counseling department at your school.Sometimes they may have referrals for students in need of services.
    You could also try United Way for information on social service programs like housing etc.
    You dial 3-1-1 to reach United Way or search online for the nearest one to you.

    How does that sound?

    We hope that you and your dad can come to a better understanding.

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