      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us, we know it takes a lot of courage to share your story. It's great to hear that you're interested in continuing on with your education! Having your high school diploma (or GED certificate) can certainly expand the opportunities that can be available to you.

      Under the McKinney-Vento Act, you are guaranteed the right to:
      -Remain in your school of origin (if possible)
      -Transportation to and from your school of origin (if possible)
      -Immediate enrollment in a new school, regardless of if you have the normally required documents
      -Receive free school meals
      -Receive services like educational support, school counseling, etc.

      You can learn more about the McKinney-Vento Act and find your local liaison by going to: https://nche.ed.gov/data/

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us, we know it takes a lot of courage to share your story. Since you are considered a legal adult you should be able to enroll yourself in school with no issues. Additionally, you may qualify for educational assistance under the McKinney-Vento Act. If you qualify, this act would guarantee you the right to stay in your original school and be provided transportation to and from school (to the extent possible), enrollment in a school in your area, receive free school meals and to receive services like educational supports and basic needs. To find out more about how to take advantage of the McKinney-Vento act we suggest calling your school directly.

      If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.
