      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out to us here at NRS. It sounds like you are looking for a safe place to stay as well as help with finding employment. We are happy to connect you with resources that might be able to help! Your options could depend on a few factors such as your age and current living situation.

      One option could be to enroll in JobCorps. JobCorps is a residential program for teens and young adults which offers vocational training and support in finding a job (jobcorps.gov). Another possible option could be a transitional living program. Transitional programs can also provide a safe place to stay and support to help you work toward living independently. The goal of a transitional program is for you to find stable employment, finish school, and save up enough money to be able to rent your own apartment.

      We can help you explore these options and locate local resources in your area if you reach out to us by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or through live chat at 1800runaway.org.

      We look forward to hearing from you soon so that we can help,
      NRS

      Hi there,

      Thank you for taking the time to write us here at NRS and we appreciate you sharing a bit about your situation. It sounds like your mom is asking you to leave home, but you are not prepared to live independently yet. Your mom has a legal responsibility to provide for you and ensure you are safe while you are a minor, so it is not okay that she is telling you to leave. We want you to know that you are not alone in this and we are here for you to listen and help as much as possible.

      If your mom does ever kick you out or threaten you, you do have the option to report this to child protective services. You can call 911 if you are in need of immediate assistance.

      In some areas there are youth shelters and transitional living programs which could be possible options for you. A transitional living program provides young people with a stable place to live and support while you work toward living independently.

      We are available 24/7 for immediate support by phone at 1-800-786-2929 and through live chat at 1800runaway.org. If you would like to talk more in detail about your situation or you want to learn more about resources available in your area, please do not hesitate to reach out by phone or live chat.

      Stay strong,
      NRS

      Hi there,

      It looks like you might have contacted NRS today through another means (for example, live chat, email or bulletin) for the same issue. Thank you for contacting us. NRS understands it takes courage to reach out for help; therefore, we would like to minimize the need for you to repeat your situation and avoid offering you duplicate services. Please call or chat us again if your situation changes or if you have more questions or concerns, or if you need additional support. We are here for you: 1-800-RUNAWAY; www.1800runaway.org.

      Best of luck,
      NRS

      Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. We know it takes a lot of courage to reach out for support, and commend you for doing so. Still, we're sorry to hear that you've been kicked out of the house and have nowhere to go. You don't deserve that. If you're in need of immediate shelter, you can always contact us for help in finding local shelters. For now, the Homeless Shelter Directory (www.homelessshelterdirectory.org) might be a good starting point. You'll be able to pull up shelters in your location, as well as their contact information. Before going, it's a good idea to call first to make sure they have availability.

      Again, if you need any support in finding local resources or in developing a plan, please reach out to us. We're available 24/7 by phone at 1-800-RUNAWAY or by chat through our website: www.1800runaway.org.

      Take care,

      NRS
