    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like you and your fiance are in a tight spot. It is legal for you two to go to an adult shelter. To find adult shelters in your area you can call 2-1-1 or go to 211.org if you are calling from an area code that is different than your location. You also can search local shelters at www.homelessshelterdirectory.org.

    Here at NRS, we have a national database transitional living program (TLPs) resources, or longer stay shelter programs for older youth and young adults. Please call or chat us if you are interested in seeing if there are any TLPs in your area: 1-800-RUNAWAY or www.1800runaway.org.

    We hope this information is helpful and we look forward to hearing from you all. Be safe out there,

    NRS

    hank you for reaching out to us and sharing what is going on. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation, and it is great that you are taking steps to find answers to your questions as you are thinking about leaving your current living situation. We are not legally trained, so we can’t say for sure what would happen once you leave home. However, we do have experience working with runaway youth, and would be happy to share what could happen in your situation.
    It sounds like you are in a complex situation with regards to your guardianship in the mental health system. We would encourage you to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) to discuss the specific details of your situation further. In general, if your guardian decided that you needed to stay at the group home, then you would need to stay there.
    Before you turn 18, a shelter will most likely try to contact your parents because you are a minor, and they oftentimes need you’re their permission to shelter you. If you were to runaway and to come into contact with police, they would probably bring you back to the group home if your guardian filed a runaway report. Again, we encourage you to contact us about how this might apply to your specific situation.
    If you would like to talk more or if you are interested in resources that may be able to help you out, you can reach us 24 hours a day at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our chat service on our website (www.1800runaway.org).

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck!

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like you are in a hurtful situation where your parents have said they might put you out, and you are looking for somewhere to go.

    Here at NRS, we can look for runaway and homeless youth shelters in your area if you call or chat us: 1-800-RUNAWAY; www.1800runaway.org. Each shelter has different protocols, so some might have grace periods where they do not need to tell your parents you are there, while others unfortunately need parental permission for you to enter the shelter. It sounds like your parents are not wanting you to stay at home, and you are not wanting to stay as well. You might try to talk to your parents about places with family members or friends that they would be okay with your staying at. Generally speaking, the easiest way you can live away from home is with permission, even though we understand those might be really hard conversations to have. If you ever would like to have a mediated conference call with your parents to let them know how you are feeling and what you need, please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    Please do not hesitate to call or chat if you have questions, need resources, or need to talk. We can explore your situation, go over all your options, and come up with a plan and resources to deal with your situation over the phone or on live chat.

    We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

    I live in Georgia and I am 17, turning 18 in 6 months. My parents have let me know they are considering putting me out the house. I have absolutely nowhere to stay, though I do have a steady paying job. I want to continue my education as well. Is there a place that I could go to that wouldn't require parental consent, or do I have to get it?

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like you are in a really tight spot after being kicked out. That must be really hard to deal with, especially on top of mental health issues. You so deserve to be supported during this difficult time.

    There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living including help with career and educational goals. If you call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat us at www.1800runaway.org, we can look for transitional living programs or other helpful homeless prevention resources in your area.

    We look forward to hearing from you and we wish you the best,

    NRS

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what's going on.

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It is our understanding that if the legal age of majority in your state is 18, then once you are 18 you are legally considered an adult. In most states, the age of majority is 18 and in no states is it lower. In Alabama and Nebraska, the age of majority is 19 and in Mississippi it is 21. Once you reach the age of majority in your state, you are entitled to live where you want as opposed to where your guardian wants. If you have any other questions or would like to talk about your situation more specifically, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or on chat at 1800runaway.org.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Just Curious


    Hi, I am 15 years old and I live with my mother who is a single mother and my 12-year-old brother. I haven't thought about running away, but if I ever did, I just wanted to know something. when a teen turns 18 years old, are they still considered a teen or do they officially become an adult at 18 years old? I just wanted to know because if things get really difficult where and I wanted to run away I live I just wanted to know for future's sake.
