  • Kicked out for 6 weeks + more

    My mother works at a summer camp for 6 weeks during which I can't be at my own home. What is the legality of being essentially kicked out of my home at age 16. I also am wondering what I can do about her having 3 jobs and child support but refusing to buy food, clothes and hygenic products. Thank you!

    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    A minor that has been put out of the home with no safe place to stay by their parent or guardian has the option of contacting Child Protective Services and filing a child abuse report for neglect.
    To get information about filing a child abuse report contact Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453

    Child Help USA is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.
    Does that make sense?
