  • Running away from my group home

    I don't want to be at my group home any more and my case manager won't move me. Can I still enroll in school if I runaway?

    RE: Running away from my group home

    Hello,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are in a tough situation. It sounds like you want to leave your group home, and you are concerned about continuing your education. You might be able to enroll in a new school if you run away, but there is a good chance that the school will notify your case worker of where you are. You might consider calling the school you want to go to and asking a counsellor what you would need in order to enroll yourself. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. We can help talk over your plan and help you stay safe, and give you resources that could help you. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the 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.

            Hello there,
            Thanks for posting on the National Runaway Safeline forum.
            We’re not legal experts here, but as long as you are considered a minor (typically under 18 years old) your group home and/or caseworker would have the right to call the police to report you as a runaway. The police would likely return you to the group home.
            It sounds like things might not be going well for you right now. Sometimes having the space to vent about your situation or exploring options that might be available to you can be helpful. We’re here 24/7 if you ever wanted to talk about what’s going on
            Please consider giving us a call here at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or trying out our Live Chat right here on this site.
            Thanks and hope to hear from you soon,
            NRS

          I am thinking about running away from a group home. I am 34 years old. If I am gone 48 hours and I am no harm to anyone or myself what can the police officers do if I am in a safe place.

            Hi there,

            Thank you for reaching out to us here at NRS. It sounds like you are not currently in the custody of your mom, but you want to be able to live with her. This must be a really tough spot to be in and it can be frustrating when you don't feel yo have much control in a situation.

Our email and Bulletin services are different in that we can only respond twice. If you would like to talk more in detail about your situation and receive immediate help, we encourage you to reach out to us through our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services at 1800runaway.org (click on the CHAT button on our website homepage).

          So I was wondering if I leave clothes at the group home and ran away do I get the clothes back if I tell somebody to get them or do they keep them and donate them?

            Hello!

            Thank you for reaching out to NRS. While we can’t speak for all shelters, generally your personal belongings may be kept for a period of time before being donated/discarded. It may be best if you call the shelter or have your friend call the shelter and ask about their specific policy to find out about the status of your personal belongings.

            Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns we can help with!

            You can reach us directly by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY or through our live chat at www.1800runaway.org. We're available 24/7, and are always happy to listen and to help.
