MAKE A DIFFERENCE

#NRPM2023

The National Runaway Safeline was created to...

Raise awareness of the runaway and homeless youth crisis and the issues that young people face.

Educate the public about solutions and the role they can play in runaway prevention and ending youth homelessness.

Increase the visibility of the services and resources provided by the National Runaway Safeline & CDS.

Reach families and youth-at risk in the 14 counties CDS serves. In times of need CDS is here to help.

2001

National leaders met at the White House Conference on Exploited and Runaway Children to raise awareness of the steps that parents, law enforcement and communities could take to make America's children safer.

The conference culminated in the launch of the National Runaway Prevention week, which has since expanded into a month-long prevention and awareness campaign.

2019

Bipartisan Senate Resolution 442 designated November as National Runaway Prevention Month.

2001-2019

National leaders continue to advance efforts to assist youth and families in crisis and end youth homelessness. 

2022

NRPM is spearheaded each year by the National Runaway Safeline, with the support of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) and other national and local partners like CDS.
