All right, so I’ve talked a little about the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) in some of my previous posts and I think you may have an idea what it’s all about. As for those who would like more clarification or info on it, I thought I’d take this opportunity to tell you more about NRS because if you want to talk to someone or are looking for help NRS can help with any of the topics addressed on Switched-On.   Having volunteered at NRS is really what makes me certain that they have the resources to help you with pretty much anything life throws your way, and I know that you’re thinking I’m only promoting NRS in this blog because I volunteer there but that’s not the case. Not only does NRS provide you with a listening ear, but they also have access to countless resources (I’m sure there’s a specific number, but its still big) [Editor’s note – over 15,000 resources!].   Now I’ve said “resources” a couple of times so let me be a little more specific. By resources I mean they have access to locate places that can help you by providing shelter, counseling, and help with any of your specific needs. You can also call asking for info on any legal issue that you may be dealing with like emancipation, custody, or info on any laws in your particular state.   So, if you think you may need help don’t hesitate to call especially if you don’t have any idea what your options are because the person answering the phone will help you figure that out, as well as help you execute a plan to get to where you want to be.  – Ruben
