Real Life Stories of Runaways

After running away, discover the real life stories of homeless people as they confide in those who know them for who they are (each story is shared with love ~ and permission).

Rebecca ran away at age 14. In her own words, this is Rebecca's story...

Elle ran away at age 14 and was almost forced into prostitution by a drug dealer. Read about how she was given a second chance by homeless people who came to her aid.

Melissa ran away at age 15. She has been treated like a toilet all her life, as a child, as a teenage girl and now as a woman she has been raped sometimes daily by whatever male wants to use her.
