Service Providers and Resources
When someone contacts NRS through our hotline, live chat, email or forum, we are here to listen and to help. Often, youth reach out hoping for a connection to local resources. Through our extensive, nationwide network of organizations and services, we are able to find open shelters, mental health services, food pantries, protection from human traffickers and more.
We have listed common resources available for specific issues.
