Runaway Intervention Program
Created in 2006, the Runaway Intervention Program (RIP) is a joint effort among our office, Midwest Children’s Resource Center (MCRC), Ramsey County Community Human Services, and other community partners to identify and address the needs of young runaway girls.
RIP helps young people by reducing the traumatic response to being victimized, improving their health, and connecting them with needed services and support. We also help parents/guardians by educating them on the risks of running away, the young person’s physical and developmental needs, and the services that are available to them.
Services are tailored to the young person and his or her family and are culturally appropriate and respectful.
