  • running away questions

    Is it a good idea to bring my phone with me. It's a tracphone. It has no SIM card or phone number. I will not message anyone. Just listen to music and play games. I'll keep it on airplane mode.

    Hi there,

    It sounds like you’re facing some tough challenges and we hope to be able to help.

    We aren’t sure where you’re going, but we’re going to assume you mean that you’re running away. If this is not true, feel free to contact us again and clarify what exactly you mean.

    Bringing things that will help you feel better about your situation and will help you pass time may help you feel better as a runaway. Leisure and enjoyment are still important, even as a runaway. If you want to bring your phone, it seems reasonable to do so. You may want to call us to talk more about what you may or may not want to bring with you, and you may also want to talk with us about your plan so you can make improvements to it. You can reach us at 1-800-786-2929.

    We hope this helped. Best of luck,
    -NRS

        Hi there,

        Thanks for reaching out. It's great to hear that you're looking for some answers to questions and are planning for your safety in the event you leave. Safety planning is important to us because it decreases the likelihood of runaway youth getting into dangerous situations. If you have a place to live and a job, that definitely helps keep you safe. Of course, no matter what you do, you may face dangers, and so planning for the unexpected becomes more important. Please call us if you have specific questions about maintaining your safety as a runaway, by calling us anytime at 1-800-786-2929.

        Best,
        NRS

        Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline where we are here to listen and help as best as we can. It sounds like you may qualify for a service that we offer called the Home Free Program that provides free bus tickets to help qualifying runaway and homeless youth ages 12 to 21 reunite with their families. The first step in utilizing the service is to call in to 1-800-RUNAWAY to inquire. We are only able to begin the process of getting a Home Free ticket when you call us on the phone. From there we can explore this option and provide more information on the process. We could also help you have the conversation with your parents if you are afraid to ask for help getting back home.

        Let us know how we can best help,

        NRS
