About Us

The National Runaway Safeline (NRS) helps keep America's runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets. Founded as Metrohelp in 1971, NRS is the national crisis and communication system for runaway, homeless and at-risk youth. NRS continues to be uniquely equipped to respond to youth and families in crisis through the 1-800-RUNAWAY hotline and online services at 1800RUNAWAY.org that include email, forums and a live chat. Each year, NRS connects more than 100,000 runaway, homeless, at-risk youth and their family members to help and hope through hotline, online, and offline services and a nationwide database of about 6,500 resources. NRS operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
