The National Runaway Safeline is the federally designated national communication system for runaway and homeless youth. Youth and family members call 24 hours a day to work through problems and find local help from social service agencies and organizations. Some callers just need someone to talk to; others need help finding a shelter, food, medical assistance, or counseling. Some callers are on the streets; others are struggling with other issues. NRS works to identify options to prevent them from leaving their home, when possible and if appropriate.

National Clearinghouse for Homeless Youth and Families, or NCHYF, is dedicated to spotlighting and sharing information and resources to support grantees and organizations that serve runaway and homeless youth (RHY).  Many of you may be familiar with the former National Clearinghouse on Families and Youth, or NCFY, which provided information and resources on topics for serving family and youth. NCHYF works to identify and meet the needs of RHY service providers, including providing information on and access to research, literature, best practices, evidence-based approaches, trends, and success stories.  Additionally, NCHYF provides resources that promote collaboration with other local and federal partners.
