11. Thank you for this, Mr. Scorpio -

Most large cities now have some sort of runaway shelter - that won't necessarily force the kids back into a bad home situation. I'm going to be carrying this name and phone number with me from now on -




1-800-RUNAWAY

(1-800-786-2929)


What is the National Runaway Safeline (NRS)?
We are the federally-designated national communication system (hotline and website) for runaway and homeless youth. Youth and family members call 24 hours a day to work through problems and find local help from social service agencies and organizations. Some callers just need someone to talk to, others need help finding a shelter, food, medical assistance, or counseling. Some callers are on the streets, others are struggling with other issues and we work with them to identify options to prevent them from leaving their home, when possible and if appropriate.
