  • I'm going to runaway but I'm scared to get homesick.

    I'm 15 and I'm running away to another state. Once I leave I can come back because I don't wanna deal with the trouble. I'm scared I'll get homesick. Any other runaways get homesick?

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are running away, and you are concerned about feeling homesick. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. Running away can be really risky, and we often hear from youth who ran away and want to go back home because they ended up in a dangerous situation or with nowhere to go. Running across state lines comes with it’s own challenges. If you go so far away from home, do you have a plan for how to get back? Since you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian can call the police and report you missing. It sounds like you are concerned about dealing with trouble if you leave. Our main concern is always your safety. If you need to talk about your plans, we are here for you. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call 24/7. 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.
