NAPO Supports National Runaway Prevention Month

October 24, 2013

November is National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM).  NAPO is an official partner of NRPM, which is co- sponsored every year by the National Runaway Safeline and the National Network for Youth.  The goals of NRPM are:

  1. To raise awareness about the issues that runaways and homeless youth face, and
  2. To educate the public about solutions to preventing youth from running away from home.

When a youth runs away, the impact is felt throughout the entire community. Working together to identify resources and to help youth develop life skills can make the difference between a youth running away and/or finding needed resources.

NAPO is hopeful that our members will consider participating in some of the activities sponsored by NRPM,which will raise awareness about this important issue. For information on activities sponsored by NRPM, please visit the following site:

We appreciate your consideration.  If you have any questions about NAPO's involvement with NRPM, please contact Melissa Nee at:
