A runaway teen makes an easy target for fraud, robbery, or exploitation through human trafficking. Many become involved with drugs, pornography, survival sex, or teen prostitution.
In a small number of cases, some have been abducted or murdered. Those who do manage to survive on the streets are at risk for sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy, alcohol or other drug abuse, and suicide.


Youth who comply with rules may be able to stay for up to 14 days.
