    Thank you for reaching out to us at National Runaway Safeline. We know that it isn’t always easy to ask for help. We’re more than happy to discuss your options with you. We’re here to support you through this challenging time.
    Generally speaking, if you leave home before you are legally an adult, your parents would be able to file a runaway report. This would mean that you would be returned home by the police if found. Running away is not a crime, but any adult that you stay with could risk being charged for harboring a runaway. These are some factors to take into account when considering running away.
    In the end, we cannot tell you what to do. You know your situation best. However, if you’d like to talk through your options in greater detail, feel free to reach out. We can best assist you over phone at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat at We’re here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You do not have to be alone in this.
    Feel free to reach out if you’d like to chat about what’s going on.
    All the best,
    National Runaway Safeline (NRS)
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
