  • I just need a shelter

    I'm in Winston-Salem NC & need contact info for a youth shelter. I will be homeless in a week. Don't even bother asking me to reconcile with my parents or all that other jazz. All I need is a shelter that will take a 17 year old. That's it.

    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    We would like to help you to try and locate services in your area however we do not have an emergency youth shelter listed in our data base. Perhaps you can call 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or visit (live Chat) to tell us more about your situation.
    From there we can try to see what options might be available to you in your surrounding area.
    Would that be okay for you?

    We understand the urgency of your situation.

    FYI: If you are being put out of your parent or guardians home you can contact Child Help USA at: 1-800-422-4453

    They can help you to locate the nearest office for Child Protective Services for assistance with emergency housing. In most states it is considered neglect for a parent or guardian to put a minor out of the home. We just wanted to make you aware of this information.

    We hope to hear from you soon.

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