    HI, thanks for reaching out; we are glad that you did. It sounds like things have been awful at home for a really long time and that you have been very strong and brave to survive both of your parents.
    We do have a resource to help you with school. It's the National Center for Homeless Educational Helpline 1-800-308-2145, because if you go to your friends, you would probably be considered a homeless student and you have the right under a federal law, the McKinney/Vento Act, to enroll yourself in school.
    We are here for you and would like to talk with you about everything you are going through and have been through. You don't deserve any of it. We are very glad that you have friends that believe you and believe in you - that is what you do deserve.
    We hope you will reach out either by live chat through this website, or by calling our hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929).
    We truly hope to hear from you soon.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
