  • I have no where to go

    I've been in an abusive relationship with my parents for a very long time . Both physical and emotional, but mostly emotional . Everything I do is something bad to them. I'm tired of their treatment towards me and treating me like I'm garbage. I can't even speak to them about my opinion or how I'm feeling because they start yelling at me and tell me to pack my things and go . I have no close family , just some that live in a different state than me . I live in Long Island , New York and I have no where to go, I have no money . I have friends that would let me stay but I don't want to put them in any danger . But I'm so sick of feeling this way almost everyday , and I'm tired of being treated this way in my own house . I'm tired of the name calling and always being put down .

    Hello, thanks for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline! It seems you are in a really difficult situation with these circumstances. You do not deserve to be abused either emotionally or physically. If you are interested, you can report the abuse through the Child Help USA (1-800-422-4453) or since you are located in New York the line to report is 1-800-342-3720. This is an option you can pursue to report the abuse and get help to try to see what can be done. It seems like you are thinking about leaving home because of the circumstances and not feeling safe. Another option is to call the police when a dangerous situation arises to get immediate help. If you decide to leave home, we want to make sure you get to a safe place and plan ahead. You said you don’t want to get your friend in trouble, which could occur due to the risks if your parents file a runaway report. This could occur if you are under 18, which is the general legal age to be an adult. We aren’t legal experts, but if your parents file a runaway report the police could try to find you and if you are at a friend’s house there is a risk of them being charged with harboring a runaway. This depends on how your local police department handles runaway cases. There is a risk and we can call out to your local police departments to see how they would handle you situation by asking hypothetical questions about your situation. The most important thing is getting you to a place you feel safe. We can definitely go over a plan to help you decide what you feel is best for you. You can reach us at our 24/7 confidential phone lines at 1-800-RUNAWAY or use our online chat lines. We hope to hear from you soon!
    Best, NRS
