    Why do youth shelters have a 24 hour rule?

  • #2
    Re: shelters

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We were a bit confused by your question, but we believe you’re referring to why shelters have a 24 hour limit on how long you can stay with the shelter.

    While the rules of each shelter vary, many shelters do have a 24 hour rule for temporary housing. This may be to allow turn around to free up space regularly for youth in need. Many shelters may also offer transitional living programs which serve in-need youth on a more long term basis.

    We hope that answered your question. If not, or if you’d like to discuss this further, please feel free to reach out to NRS using our chat service or by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY. We’re open 24/7 and always here to listen.

    Take care,

    NRS

        Hello,

        Thanks for responding. There is no one answer to your questions. Shelters all have different rules that they abide by. Yes they help youth in need. In most cases, if you are a minor it is illegal to harbor a runaway. Which is why you can only stay for a short period of time, before they have to contact your parents.
