The National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) does everything it can to help youth in crisis figure out solutions for their problems. That’s why, a couple weeks ago, NRS unveiled its new website. It might seem like redesigning a website is a little superficial for a crisis hotline. But actually, the new site makes it easier and faster for visitors to find help, whether it’s through the phone services, live chat services, or information that NRS provides. Plus, most people using google don’t bother to skim results after the first page. If NRS doesn’t show up near the top when people search “runaway,” a ton of people might miss out on the best resource out there for them. Now, though, NRS is up there with the top results, though we still have to compete with Kanye West’s videos.
