This is something good to share for runaway children. Did not know this was even a thing but it seems like something worth sharing, so please do the same to help someone who might need it.
Greyhound Lines in partnership with National Runaway Safeline provides runaway kids between 12 and 21 years with a free bus ticket back home to their families or legal guardians.
How does it work?
To be eligible, the child has to call the NRS helpline at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
They must also be named on a runaway report and be willing to be reunited with their family (and vice versa).
If the young person returning home is under the age of 15, Home Free will also provide a free ticket for the parent or legal guardian.
Home Free can only be used on two occasions by the same person.
If you or someone you know has run away and wants to come home or you need some help, please call toll-free 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929). To find out more about National Runaway Safeline, visit www.1800runaway.org
