Piecing it All Together During National Runaway Prevention Month

Young people piecing together a jigsaw puzzle

Once again this November, the National Runaway Safeline is hosting National Runaway Prevention Month. This year, the month-long commemoration will highlight the connection between the many challenges faced by runaway and homeless youth, such as domestic abuse and neglect, discrimination and human trafficking. Efforts that target each of these issues can play an important role in keeping families together and ending youth homelessness.

Here are a few ideas from the NRS Community Planning Guide for “Piecing it All Together” in November:

NRS also offers free resources to agencies working with youth and families, including

  • The 14-module “Let’s Talk Runaway Prevention Curriculum.”
  • A brochure explaining their services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people.
  • An informational guide for parents and families whose children run away from home.
