The National Runaway Switchboard provides many services to help runaways. Our 24-hour hotline is the most important source for help. By calling 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929), it connects you to our team of trained volunteers. If you are a runaway, or someone planning to runaway, discuss your problems with our volunteers — they may be able to help find resources for you to help resolve your problems. It is anonymous and confidential. We also have a Home Free Program, also accessible by calling our hotline, which aims to help bring runaways between the ages 12 to 20 back to their families through a collaboration with Greyhound. By calling this hotline, you can also find resources that can let you know more about what you can do to help. For example, you can volunteer for our Street Team, which helps to promote knowledge about the National Runaway Switchboard and our mission. You can learn more about this on our website as well as our Facebook and Myspace pages.
