Endangered "Runaway"?

November 3, 2011

Endangered Runaways: Recently I attended the Office of Justice Programs National Conference on “Children’s Justice and Safety: Unite, Build and Lead.” Something staggering I learned was, the word runaway is not always the entire situation when you see this posted to one of our sites. 71% of reported runaway youth may have left home because of a drug issue in the home or they are victims of sexual physical abuse. They all do not runaway because they are mad at Mom or Dad. These posters can be viewed under your state by clicking on the NCMEC logo at the top of the page.
