Where would a minor stay if their parent has an order of protection against them?

They’re 17 so legally they wouldn’t be able to rent anywhere and they can’t come within 300 ft of the parent so they won’t be able to live in their old house. They only have the one parent. What can they and should they do in this situation?

What a terrible situation all around.  I hope that the matter resolves itself and soon.  In the meantime, is there a family member that the minor can stay with for the time being?  Or a claose friend whose parents would take him or her in?  Otherwise a mnor with out a place to go would be placed under the care of child protective services.  Good luck.
