National Runaway Prevention Month
November 1 – November 30 CDT
National Runaway Prevention Month is spearheaded each year by the National Runaway Safeline and National Network for Youth. The goals of National Runaway Prevention Month are two-fold: To raise awareness of the runaway and homeless youth crisis and the issues that these young people face and to educate the public about solutions and the role they can play in ending youth homelessness.
National Runaway Prevention Month recognizes that each year, thousands of U.S. youth run away from home, are asked to leave their homes, and/or become homeless for a variety of reasons leaving many young people without a safe place to stay. They sleep on the streets, in cars or on their friends’ couches.
