Question: My son friend 14 year old kid is homeless and staying in different friends home every day..his mom has never contacted any adults and the kid doesn't know where she is at ..what can I do to get this kid help

Answer: Failing to provide one's minor child with food, clothing, financial support, supervision, and shelter is child neglect under Arizona law.  A 14 year old child is much too young to be on their own.  You can report the situation to the Arizona Department of Child Safety.  Call 1-888-767-2445.
