  • Will my parents be notified?

    I want to runaway because my parents provide me no privacy and im a teenager. When my mom is at work she makes me sit in front of a live camera from 8am-9pm and it sucks. She says if i dont obey she will send my to my dads. she knows at my dads (who lives with his whole family) they all have touched me innapropiatley and said disgusting things about my body. She is still going to send me there which is why I want to leave.

    Thanks for reaching out, we understand this can be a difficult step. We are here to support you as much as we can! It sounds like things have been tough at home with your mom. You mentioned some things that raise concern for your safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services).

    If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.

    It sounds like you may have experienced some kind of sexual violence or abuse. You do not deserve to have this happen to you, and you deserve to be believed and supported.
