ARISTA/NASHVILLE artist JASON MICHAEL CARROLL and THE NATIONAL RUNAWAY SWITCHBOARD have formed a partnership to raise awareness about the runaway crisis in AMERICA and bring awareness of the crisis help line 1-800-RUNAWAY.
CARROLL's current single "Hurry Home" deals with the story of a father and his runaway daughter. CARROLL will serve as a spokesperson for NRS, recorded a series of radio public service announcements and has included the NRS logo and crisis hotline number at the end of his "Hurry Home" video.
MAUREEN BLAHA, NRS Executive Director said: "JASON's song speaks to millions of people from youth to parents to siblings and families who are affected every day by a young person's decision to run from home. He is committed to helping address this national crisis. This is an opportunity for a long-term relationship that will help further our mission of keeping AMERICA's runaway and at-risk youth safe and off the streets."
