November is National Runaway Prevention Month

National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM) is the annual awareness and prevention campaign for runaway and homeless youth issues. Every November, participants across the country host activities and events that amplify the experiences of runaway and homeless youth and the role everyone plays in ending youth homelessness.

NRPM is spearheaded each year by the National Runaway Safeline (NRS), the federally designated communication system for runaway and homeless youth, with the support of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB).

The goals of NRPM are two-fold:

  1. To raise awareness of the runaway and homeless youth crisis and the issues that these young people face
  2. To educate the public about solutions and the role they can play in ending youth homelessness
