It might be scary to be calling a hotline and talking to someone who is basically a stranger. It could feel awkward telling someone whose face you can’t even see that you’ve run away, or are thinking of running away. Or maybe you’re an adult in a teen runaway’s life who is worried sick about their welfare. At our crisis line, however, this is what we volunteer for, what we work towards: helping those in need at their time of crisis when there doesn’t seem to be anyone to turn to. We may ask questions that seem awfully personal, but we promise that when we do this it’s not to gossip or to be really nosy. We do this so we can help you figure out what steps to take, what to do. Everything you say is kept in complete confidence; no calls are recorded, and we make sure to keep what we hear between caller and liner. If you’re scared to talk to someone, don’t worry. We’re there to help.
