    Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline. It takes great courage to reach out for help and we are glad that you decided to reach out us.
    It sounds like you are going through a hard time right now. Running away can be hard in many cases it can be helpful to think about where you can stay on a long term basis, how you might pay for rent, food, and other living expenses. While, we are not legal experts just speaking generally running away from home is not illegal however if you are parents are to file a police report the police can bring you back home and whoever you are staying with could be charged with harboring a runaway.
    All of this can be overwhelming and we are here to support you through this hard time. If it might be an option for you, you could call us at our 24 hour confidential hotline at 1-800-786-2929 and we can just listen to you, explore your situation and provide you any resources.

    We wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon.

    Best,
    NRS

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We're sorry to hear about all that has been going on and want you to know that you deserve to feel safe and happy in your home. You could reach out to Child Help at 1-800-422-4453 to talk to someone about child abuse reporting and the possibility of having custody transferred to someone else. You could call with your grandma so she can help you have that conversation and she can get the information about possibly getting custody of you. You also have the right to report the neglect and abuse that you have experienced while living with your brother. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly or to possibly contact other legal aid.

    If you want to walk through any other options, don't hesitate to give us a call at 1-880-786-2929.

    Stay safe,

    NRS

    Hello I’m 16 years old and currently live with my brother his wife and my two nephews. My brother is 31 because my mom had him when she was 15. But anyways I was taken from my mom at 7 and my lives with my aunt for a little and then my brother eventually got custody of me. He is always drunk and a couple times has physically assaulted me. Him and his wife are also always argueing and causing problems which makes him even more mad. I live in California and want to get out of my house. My grandma lives in Nevada and is willing to take me in. I am down here visiting for the summer and she has got custody of two of my cousins a couple years back and both of them eventually turned 18 and one got a job and moved with his mom and the other joined the military last year. But I want to live with her and my brother doesn’t want that to happen. Since she lives in Nevada and I live in California what can we do? Thank you for your help and time.

    Hello! Thanks for reaching out today! It takes a lot of strength to ask for help and we appreciate your courage.
    We’re sorry that your parents ignore your emotional and mental needs. Emotional and mental issues are very difficult to go through especially if you are not being supported by your family. It is wonderful that you have a boyfriend that loves you that much, but we can understand the financial challenges facing you two if you were living together.
    You sound like a very smart and resilient person. We’re sorry that you don’t want to live anymore. If you want to talk to someone about these feelings, you can always reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. There you can talk to experienced, supportive individuals. You can also explore their website suicidepreventionlifeline.org for more information.
    In terms of wanting to leave your parents’ house, there are a lot options you can explore. You might consider a friend or family member who might be kind enough to take you in. There is also the possibility of living in a youth shelter that could be worth looking at. There would be some a few legal issues if your parents don’t give you their permission to move. They could file a Runaway Report and potentially charge a person with whom you stay with Harboring a Runaway charges. Many shelters have to contact your parents to make them aware of your location. These might be some things to consider before you leave.
    If you want to talk more about your situation or about potential options, please give us a call at 1-800-786-2929. We are 24/7, toll free and completely confidential.
    Thanks again for reaching out.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you're dealing with a lot of stress at home and hopefully we can help. Running away is not something that is likely to get you arrested. Granted, we are not legal experts, but usually we just hear about runaways being returned home by police if they are reported to and found by police. If you have other questions, feel free to call at 1-800-786-2929.

    Best,

    Hello there,

    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We are glad that you reached out to us here and hope that we can provide you with the support you’re looking for. It sounds like things at home with your dad and step-mom are pretty difficult and it makes sense that you’d want to consider living somewhere else.
    Sometimes it can be helpful to talk to someone like a teacher or another adult that you trust in order to work through what’s happening at home. You deserve to feel heard and we imagine it is difficult to feel like you mess everything up.

    You mentioned you’re interested in moving in with your biological mom, but need your step-mom’s support to move there. At the National Runaway Safeline we do offer conference calling between your guardian and you to begin that conversation. Sometimes it can help to have a third party on the phone to mediate the conversation. If you are interested in this service or speaking with someone in general at NRS, feel free to contact us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are open 24/7 and Toll Free.

    Thank you again for reaching out. We wish you the best of luck.
    Take care,
    NRS

    Hi I'm 16 now but my parents got divorced when I was 2. Anyways I just need some help. Where I live now is with my dad and Stepmom. I'm always messing things up and getting in trouble. My stepmom makes me and my sister do almost all the chores in the house, doesn't let us do much besides help her with her daycare and just all around stressed all the time. My step mom is nice but gets angry really easily. For the past few years she has been threatening us by telling us if we are gonna be ungrateful we can go live with our Biological mother. That got me thinking. Why dont I? She only gets mad at me and blames me for things that my sister or others wont take responsibility for. (bad things) I just dont belong here. The only person here who loves me is my dad. My Actual mom is NOT the best person in the world but I feel like if i'm there I can't mess up any more and I can pursue things I have wanted to do without being made fun of. (Youtube, Writing stories and comics, ect.) My parents are not supportive of me unless its something to do with my church. I want to tell my stepmom to call my mom and tell her that I want to come live with her but I'm afraid too. Please help!

    Hello,
    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. You don’t deserve to be abused by anyone, please understand that it is not your fault that this has happened.
    Just so that you know we are not legal experts and only can provide some general legal information when it comes to someone running away or someone assisting/aiding a person running away.

    Someone under 18 that leaves home, the parent/guardian may file them as a runaway and they may be returned home. Also, those that a reported runaway stays with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. Anyone found to be assisting or aiding someone to run away may also find themselves at risk legally. For more specifics on the law, you might consider contacting the local non-emergency number for the police. You might also look for a legal aid center in the area. They may be able to answer any legal questions on the subject.


    It sounds like you would possibly like to talk with your mom at some point but you are feeling a bit afraid about how she might react. We understand how upsetting and stressful this must be for you. Sometimes talking things out might help to come up with some options for coping with your situation and your depression.
    If you would like to talk more in detail we are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. Contact NRS at: 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800Runaway.org (Live Chat).

    You did a wonderful job reaching out and we hope that things get better for you.

    If you should ever be at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.

    Take care,
    NRS
