“What drew me to NRS was the fact that most of the people on the phones and taking the calls are volunteers.”
Why I Choose to Support the National Runaway Safeline – Cindy Campbell
We share the next edition of a series of articles written by our generous and dedicated Board of Directors. Board members will be invited to share their thoughts on why they choose to support NRS, and support our work with runaway and homeless youth. Our next contributor is Cindy Campbell, a family attorney, focused on helping families with various legal issues through her family law firm, The Law Offices of Cindy K. Campbell.
I became a recent board member for the National Runaway Safeline (“NRS”) in September 2015. I wanted to be a part of this non-profit organization that does such amazing work to help the homeless and runaway youth. What drew me to NRS was the fact that most of the people on the phones and taking the calls are volunteers. The way the community pitches in to help these kids is inspiring and touches my heart.
The NRS is really a lifeline to our youth who might not have anyone else to call for help. In a time of need they offer support, guidance, and resources.
At the end of each board meeting, we close with a personal story of one of the individuals that was recently helped through the NRS. To me, this is what it is all about!
Although they are a national safe line, they are based out of Chicago, IL. If anyone in the area is looking for an organization to help, I can tell you, this is one of the best and they are always looking for volunteers and donations. Please check out their website at: 1800runaway.org.
