    Thanks for contacting us here at NRS! We are sorry that you feel not wanted and loved. It can often feel alone and hard to go through something like that. As far we know, though we are not legal experts, if you are under the age of 18 it would be a bit hard to run away. As a result the police would probably be looking for you. It might be a good idea to talk to your counselor/case worker to see what they would say. They might be able to send you somewhere else. we can also speak with you and help report any abuse you might be going through. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
