There’s a lot more involved in calling someone than just dialing. The decision to reach out and contact a person involves a process of choices that can be hard to make. You have to find a phone number, get access to a phone, and have a quiet, private, and safe place to talk. The National Runaway Switchboard knows how difficult it can be to do all these things, and so it has many services available besides the hotline. One of these is our Myspace page. The MySpace page lets youth who need help easily access it. All that anyone needs to do to get in touch is to search National Runaway Switchboard on the website. Once there, they can ask questions, talk with a real, informed person, and get information about what to do next. Conveniently, they can do all this from a computer, which is usually free at a public library, school, or friend’s house.
