Can a 16 year old legally leave home?

I know a 16 year old girl, she will be 17 in may, who wants to run away from home. I have offered my home to her as she is friends with my 16 year old daughter. Can she legally come live with me even if her parents disbute her leaving? She has a job and a 3.5 gpa in high school. She is willing to pay rent to me for her room and board. Please let me know what this young girl can do. Thank you.
