    Thanks so much for reaching out! It sounds like you are in a stressful situation, but you are not alone.

    There are many options of places you could go. For instance, if you feel comfortable, you could stay at a shelter. If you would like to call or chat with us, we could do our best to help you find one. Otherwise, you could call 211, text SAFE and your zipcode to 69866, or look on to locate shelters. There is also the option of staying with another legal guardian or other friend or family member. However, if whomever you ran away from files a runaway report and the police find you, the friend or family member you were staying with could be fined for harboring a runaway.

    Thanks again for reaching out, it takes a lot of bravery to ask for help, and it’s really great to see you trying to figure out your options. If you would like to talk more about your specific situation, feel free to chat or call us. We’re always here to listen and help. 1-800-786-2929
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
