    Hello, Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. First off we want to say that abuse whether its physical, sexual, emotional or verbal, it is never okay and you do not deserve it and do have the right to report it. We want you to know that you do have the right to make a report with Child Protective Services. Child Help USA is an information and referral line that can connect you with your local CPS abuse hotline. That number is 1-800-422-4453. We understand that making an abuse report can be intimidating so if you like we can call together to provide support.
    You are a strong and brave person for having shared this with us. You are not alone and there are people in this world that care about you and want to see you happy. We know that you mentioned that you think running away might be a good idea. We are not here to tell you what to do but if running away is something you are thinking about doing here are some things to consider.
    -How will your parents react to you leaving?
    -Will they call the police?
    -Do you have a safe place to go?
    -What about school? Is continuing an education important to you?
    -How are you going to survive? Food? Shelter? Transportation? Money?
    -Who can you depend on if you were to leave home?
    - What is your plan B if your first plan does not work out?
    -Who have you reached out to make things better at home?
    -If you were forced to return home, what do you think that would look like?
    Like we said before we are here to support you. If you would like to talk over your situation or need help reporting please let us know. Stay strong hope is out there.
    Best wishes,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
