    Hi there,

    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now.  Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.

    We are so sorry to hear that you have experienced sexual violence. You do not deserve to have this happen to you, and you deserve to be believed and supported. One really great resource for all survivors of sexual assault or abuse is RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network). You can call them any time 24/7 at 1-800-656-4673, or go to www.rainn.org to use their online hotline. RAINN is the National Sexual Assault Hotline and has a lot of services, support and resources that you may find helpful.

    Additionally, maybe there is a trusted adult in your life you can go to for support as well such as a family member, school counselor, or a friend's parent. Perhaps someone you trust can help you communicate your needs to your mom to ensure that you are able to feel safe and supported at home. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to child protective services. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation.

    If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon. Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

    We hope to hear from you soon,

    I’m 15 and I can no longer live in my toxic family household

    I am 15 years old and in high school and have been trying to stay positive and hold on stronger till I graduate. But I just can’t do it anymore. My step father has been sexually harassing me for the past 4 years. I would wake up at night and see him standing in the corner of my room in nothing but a tank top and boxers just watching me sleep. Or he would try to touch me or grope me while I slept. Every time I would fight him or beg him to stop he would manipulate me into staying quiet. I told my mom on multiple occasions and all she would do is make him say he’s sorry then go on with our lives like nothing happened. He still continues to do this. And I feel like I’m defeated and broken. I have contemplated running away multiple times as well as hurting my self. I’ve tried to stay as positive as I can but I feel as though I’ve lost myself. I’m no longer the outgoing and friendly person I used to be. I wear baggy clothes to avoid any attention to myself and always keep my head down. I’ve lost all my confidence because of feeling like if I look anywhere close to good he’ll touch me again. I don’t know what to do but I feel like I’m suffocating here. I’m Done.
