National Runaway Prevention Month
November is National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM), a public awareness campaign designed to “Shine a Light” on the experiences of runaway and homeless youth that too often remain invisible. It is also an opportunity to spotlight the resources available to support youth in crisis throughout the nation. As part of the campaign, individuals, organizations and communities nationwide work together to prevent youth homelessness.
National Runaway Prevention Month is spearheaded each year by the National Runaway Safeline, a nonprofit organization working to keep runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets, with the support of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB).
