    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS! It sounds like you’re going through a very hard time, and we are here to help in any way 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 not okay that your parents are threatening to kick you out, that is considered neglect to kick you out. If you want to report that to police or CPS, that is definitely your right. We have a database of resources if you need somewhere to go. There is also the National Safe Place organization, this organization provides access to immediate help and supportive resources for youth in need. You can look up your city and state to see if there are any safe places near you listed. You also may use your phone to text the word “safe” and your current location (city/state/zip) to 69866. If there are safe places and shelters nearby, a list of those will be sent to your phone and you may have the option to text back and forth with a trained counselor as well.

    Again, thank you for reaching out. It sounds like you’re going through a stressful time, remember you’re not alone. 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
