  • Grouphome runaway turning 18

    Hi, i live in georgia & i have a close friend and she’s been in DFCS since she was 14. she’s ran away multiple times & she always comes & sees me. Now i love her & im very concerned. She’s about to turn 18 in May & she ran away from her group home a few months before she turned 16. we just wanna kno if she waits till she turns 18 will she be able to renter society & get all her paper work nd start working or will she still have consequences to face?

    Thanks for writing in. It sounds like your friend has been through a lot in her life and she’s lucky to have a friend like you on her side. We’re not legal experts, but generally speaking running away is not a crime and your friend should not have to face legal consequences. She can try to get her paperwork like birth certificates, ID, etc from her local vital records office. If she has more questions or wants to talk about the situation more specifically, our lines are open 24/7 so someone is always here to listen and to help. Our number is 1-800-786-2929. Best of luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
