Today is our last day in our offices at 3080 N. Lincoln Avenue. Tomorrow, we will be moving into a newly constructed office a block north of our current location.
There are 30+ years of memories and stories that have been created and gathered within these walls. Established in 1971, NRS was created to help runaway youth in the Chicago metropolitan area. It has since become a national organization, making hundreds of thousands of connections with youth and parents per year, providing resources to those in need.
We are busy packing away our offices:
During that time, we have been able to help youth find the safety and resources they need in their lives. We have documented stories from Lindsey, Anna, Megan, Lily, and others. We have been lucky to be instrumental in providing a necessary service for an underserved population in our society. However, we are not done.
Our new space will allow us to continue our mission with advanced technology, an expanded crisis call center, a state of the art training room for future volunteers, all within a secure, 24-hour facility. If you have been following us on social media, you have seen the impressive interiors that will allow our team and volunteers to work more efficiently and comfortably. We are excited to start this new chapter.
Follow us this week for more developments, and we will be sharing more as we make our new offices our new home.
