      Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

      We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. If you need emergency shelter NRS has a national Data base that allows us to assist you with locating shelter services in your area.
      You also have the option of speaking with a counselor or social worker at school about your situation. They may be able to give you information for family crisis services.
      This could also mean that they would have to file a child abuse report with child protective services being that they are mandated reporters. This usually happens if there is concern for abuse. NRS is here to listen and here to help.
      You do not deserve to feel this kind of behavior from your mother. It is no fault of yours that this is happening.

      If you would like to talk more about your situation and explore or go over the things we mentioned, please call or chat.
