So I just got home from a retreat/meeting thing, and during that one of my friends there that I care about a lot told me that his dad had kicked him out of the house last Thursday and he had slept in his truck that night. I totally could’ve (and would’ve) invited him to stay at my house – except he lives four hours away from me. Now I’m home and he’s…well I don’t exactly know where. Even if he were to go back to his house, it’s obviously not a healthy environment for him. How do you help someone that comes from a broken home? What would I even begin to say? Have any of you been on either side of this? I’m just scared for him, honestly. If you don’t have advice, simply praying would mean the world to me. I know that’s what I’m doing.

I am definitely praying! how old is he? if he’s old enough to get a job than I would recommend he do that so he will be able to pay for his own place soon. if he has a truck then maybe he could drive down to you and stay with you until you find a place for him. I would tell your youth pastor or pastor about this and see if there’s anyone in the church who can help if you cant. PRAY!!!!! he needs it and we all know the power of prayer!! God has a purpose in this and I know it will work out…ask him if his family was abusive or anything like that because you can call CPS and they will take care of him and help him with that. (I wouldn’t do that though because then he would be in a foster home or they would find another family for him and I went through that and wouldn’t want him to) I hope this helps!! keep me updated!!

Could invite him anyway. He can always decline.
