  • Yes I'm a run away

    I got 11 months till I'm 17, I've paid the consequences for running away and breaking into a empty house for shelter last year ( went to JDC for a month and Placement for six months) since I've been back into my family I mourn to be back into JDC and Placement because they cared about me and my safety. Getting threatened by my dad, " I'm take this belt across your face" , all I did was clean the garage and left a empty box I am going to be honest, I knew I should've finished the job but I know I didn't deserve that, especially when I had a friend over. I told my friend what just happened cause I was a little teary cause my dad gave me a scary look and I was in a corner when he said the above statement. My friends response was " that's messed up " and he told me his dad would never treat him like that. My thoughts were, I've always wanted someone who would love me and have respect for me. I really want to finish my story but right now I have to take care of myself and get something to eat. This my first time talking bout my feelings and sharing my story because I'm starting to feel like none of this will matter, like it would all be over soon, but I'm keeping myself motivated by looking into the future. What if these 11 months go by and I can go out of hiding, what do I do then, where do I start? I'm in Texas, I seen my sister who turned 17, get slapped hard across her face by my dad because she didn't answer a question which was " why u doing drugs" and my dad knew he was the reason, but he wanted her to say it. Getting something to eat is hard. I go days without food and if I do eat it's very little amount and i know it's not good for me to go days without eating but I also have to ask myself how worse it'd be if I was still with my parents( they adopted me) they took me in when I had nobody else but was it a good thing from the start? No , they've had really rough lives when they were young is what they've told us but something tells me they could've done something, their parents are still mean to them and they're in their 38, 40s. I want an education so badly, I want to be able to school without the worry of what will happen when I get back. That was not home to me and I took precautions before asking this to my mom, " could you find me a better place to live" and she yelled at me saying " I feed you , you have a roof over your head , you got clothes, why do you want to leave?" I wasn't ready for that question at the time. She keep messing with me on Facebook Messenger two weeks ago. She told me two weeks ago, " Congratulations, one month down, 11 to go, happy one month anniversary ". There's so much that happened to me, that I had to experience and just me saying that makes me want to kill myself. My mom found where I was staying outside somehow, last week, and she told me that I can't make it on my own and told me, " I'm not gonna call the cops on you, I now you've never liked it with us but keep yourself hidden because if you get caught by police , they would bring me back to us " and then she left, she don't care about me, she wants nothing to do with me. I never knew my real parents or why I gotten taken away from them but I would like to someday find out. I was told my name was changed when I got adopted and my files about by parents can't be found anywhere but she is always lying to me and keeping secrets. I have found myself to be a lucky guy, with that being said I escape difficult situations that I don't always put myself in. My story is not fully said, I'd like to finish in a couple nights. It's getting late and I don't know what will happen next, I just want all this memories and years to be erased so I can continue with my life, because I know there's a family out there that loves me and wants me to do right and I don't want locked up behind bars and that's exactly what I see in my future if I don't find a way out this mess, I can't keep living on these streets though and I'm not going down without a fight, if I get caught by police, would there be another way to get myself emancipated legally if my parents decline to sign off on the papers. If I don't do something soon... Never mind, this will all be over soon, I'm just another human- well I'd like to know whoever will be spending their time reading this, what your thoughts are . To be honest this is nothing, all this I put down here is nothing explaining what I had been put through but It will all be over soon if something doesn't happen. I need to know what's going to happen to be able to sleep good. If I called you guys, can I get to a shelter tonight, like Id walk to where it's located could I just know where they are located and I'll just sneak in, please help, me hiding out till I'm 17 is not well planned out because one month has passed I'm on my second right now and I feel this it's been ages. I want to find a shelter I'd reveal my location only but would need to know that everything I'm doing is not gonna end by me asking for help ( don't want to get brought back ) i will commit suicide if I get caught by police and they don't help me ( like last couple times they just looked at me and didn't do anything about the stuff I told them. I have to have a location and name of a shelter by tonight or... No way I have a life to live but my parents 😩😩 please reply in a timely manner please cause I have to get somewhere, mesquittoes Bitting me

We cannot begin to imagine what pain and struggle you have endured. You shared several different important things, but it seems your main concern right now is safety and shelter which is something we can definitely help with. We are concerned for you. If you called our crisis line and provided your city and state, we will do our best to locate the nearest shelter to you to get you some help.

      My mom texted me today and said the police have a warrant for my arrest.

      I appreciated your reply. Today my mom texted me and said, " The police have a warrant for your arrest. I'd like to know why we that said and if it's true but don't know how to find out. It's really cold outside and I feel miserable and want to contact someone for help but I keep thinking it's just a trap to get myself found easier I don't want that at all. I'm willing to try and contact someone right now because I am really really cold, if it helps the city I'm in is Port Neches and the state is Texas. Could I get a location, address for a shelter nearby, I can make my way to it. Could I get one in the reply, like could the person reading this contact people and find out for me where a shelter is. That's all for today. My goal for today is to get off the streets. I think getting off the streets would strengthen my motivation.

        RE: My mom texted me today and said the police have a warrant for my arrest.

        Hello there again –

        Thank you for getting into touch with us here at the National Runaway Safeline and reaching out to us on our public forum. We are always here to listen and here to help in any way that we possibly can. From your post to us, it sounds like you are going through a very tough time right now dealing with everything. It can be very frustrating not knowing what to do or what your next step might be from this point on. Especially if you don’t really have a place to stay for the night. Hopefully we can help you with some of those questions you have.

        We aren’t legal experts here at NRS, so we cannot tell you exactly what would happen but is sounds like your mother told you that there is a warrant out for your arrest. This could have to do with your past history of getting put into detention after breaking into private property. The best way to find out would to possibly reach out to your county clerk’s office or even a local court house to see if there are any warrant’s out for your arrest.

        We did a quick search on what youth shelter’s there were in your particular city and state and there doesn’t seem to any popping up in our database. This sometimes happens to smaller towns which a state, where there isn’t much around. But checking in on some of our other resources, we found a youth center on the “National Safe Place” website. The way that it works is that this organization provides access to immediate help and supportive resources for youth in need. They are usually places like designated school, fire stations, libraries, etc. So that is always an option if you feel like go to talk to someone in person and what has been going on. The only thing is that the actual center is located in Galveston, TX not in Port Neches, TX; which is about 2 hours away. But what you can do is contact them to see if they have any other locations closer to you or work with you directly to figure out some next steps with you. That place is called “The Children’s Center, Inc.” and contact information is 888.763.8861, 4415 Avenue M Galveston, TX 77550 (www.thechildrenscenterinc.org), coordinator: Rickey Scott.

        If you give us a call on our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) we could help you find resources in your area and could potentially help you brainstorm a possible solution to the issues you are having. We would love to talk to you about what has been going on recently. We also have an online chat service available every day.
        Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
