In 1974, the National Runaway Safeline received an eight-month federal demonstration grant to establish a national hotline. During this time, NRS received 11,000 calls, demonstrating the need for this type of service. Since then, NRS’ capabilities and services have grown considerably. Annually, NRS makes more than 125,000 connections to help and hope through hotline, online and offline services.
NRS’ services are provided through funding from and in partnership with the Family and Youth Services Bureau in the Administration for Children, Youth and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, private funding is raised from foundations, corporations and individuals.
