JMC and NRS partnership

"Hurry Home" To Address Runaway Crisis and Awareness

The National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) and Jason have formed a partnership to raise awareness about the runaway crisis in America and the help that youth and families can receive by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY.

The announcement comes after the recent release of Michael's second single, "Hurry Home". A song about a father and his runaway daughter and the struggles each faces during a challenging time, "Hurry Home" poignantly portrays the love of a parent whose overriding wish is simply for the safe return of his child.

Carroll personally experienced the effects of what a runaway episode can do to a family when his aunt ran from home when he was a young boy.

"I was so young when my aunt left home that I grew up not knowing who she was - just someone we prayed for every night," says Carroll. "For all the families who are missing someone dear to them, and for all the young people who need a hand getting home, or staying home, I hope that what we're doing can help bring attention to an important issue and to the great resources available through NRS."
