  • need somewhere to go

    I am going through a lot at home. Me and my mom have not been getting along and it's gotten to the point where I feel i am going insane in this house. I have had CPS in my home before and got taken out for like 3 months a couple years ago, but they never permentally took me. I'm 15 and this morning I told my mom I don't want to be here and asked her if she could take me somewhere. She got really mad and told me to leave but she's not going to help me. I really think it's in everyone's best interest for me to leave but I really don't know where to go. The last time I ranaway was in 2019 and it was horrible, i was out with no food or shelter. I am trying to prevent that this time but am really at a lost. I have no family or friends to go to and even if I did, she took my phone so I wouldn't be able to contact them. I really am at a complete lost and need help. thanks
