Mission Statement

The National Runaway Safeline (NRS) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization whose mission is to keep America's runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets.

All services are free and available 24 hours every day. NRS services include: crisis intervention, digital services, message relay between runaways and their parent/legal guardian, referrals and conference calls to community-based resources such as counseling, support groups, alternative housing, and health care, a Home Free program in partnership with Greyhound Buslines, Inc. to help youth return home to their families, education and outreach services, free NRS promotional materials for distribution at community events, school assemblies, and health fairs.

Would you recommend National Runaway Safeline?

by bob k. (July 23, 2009)
This is a great organization and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a volunteer job that makes you feel like a hero every day, coming to the rescue of kids and families in crisis who have no other place to turn to. It's enjoyable because of the fun atmosphere, the wide variety of calls, and the wide assortment of people you will meet here. Volunteers include high school students, older retirees and everyone in between, from all backgrounds. You don't need any special skills or background for this work, just the willingness to learn and the ability to listen carefully and with empathy. You will be expected to work well on a team and to accept supervision and oversight. The staff is great and they respect volunteers as peers. There are plenty of supervisors on duty to help you and to step in if you need assistance with a tough call. You won't often need help, though, because the training is very thorough. You learn a lot before you are allowed to take calls.
