ABSTRACT

Responding to Child Victims of Human Trafficking   [open pdf - 886KB]

From the Document: "For this publication, State laws, including statutes, regulations, and policies, were collected from States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories to gain a sense of what efforts State agencies are specifically, legally required to make in response to minor victims of sex trafficking. The information collected shows that State laws require child welfare agencies to develop policies, procedures, and protocols for assessing and providing appropriate services to children and youth who are suspected victims of sex trafficking or commercial sexual exploitation. The laws also require State agencies to assist victims of trafficking in accessing services that can appropriately meet their unique needs, and this often requires child welfare agencies to collaborate with an array of community agencies."
