Are you thinking about running away? You have already run away? You are thinking about going back? If that’s the case, you surely must be asking yourself lots of questions. But, first of all, remember that, as long as you are a minor, the people who are responsible for you (parent, teacher, foster family, etc.) must assure your protection and your development. What that means, among other things, is that there are choices that you can’t make without their consent/permission and this includes voluntarily leaving the family home or another living situation where someone and/or a youth protection agency has temporary or permanent custody of you, and is legally responsible for your safety and housing.

So what happens if you decide to leave the place where you live? How can you take the fewest possible risks if you run away? What do you expect after you leave? What do you need to know in order to make the decisions that are best for you? These are some of the questions we will try to answer. And, maybe, if you check out this site, you will find information or explanations about running away that will help you to make a more informed decision.
