Maureen Blaha is the executive director of the National Runaway Safeline, (NRS), an organization with the mission to keep America’s runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets.
According to NRS’ most recent Crisis Connection Trend Report that high-lights emerging trends on youth in crisis, the number of online chats doubled and the crisis connections increased by 20 percent from 2014 to 2015. Maureen Blaha, NRS’ executive director, can talk about what this increase in crisis connections means and dive into the trends revealed, such as the reasons youth run away, how long they’re on the streets, where they go, what their means of survival are, and so much more.
