Foster Care Children and Youth and the Risk of Commercial Sexual Exploitation
“The intersection of sex trafficking victimization and foster care involvement has been widely recognized. We know from anecdotal accounts, survivor voice, and the limited data available that youth survivors of sex trafficking are disproportionately more likely to have experienced at least one foster care placement prior to their trafficking victimization.” In honor of Foster Care Month, we invite you to join Shared Hope and guest panelists in a discussion about the current state of our foster care system and the vulnerabilities youth face that put them at risk of commercial sexual exploitation. We’ll discuss what we can do as advocates and professionals to better support foster care children and youth to promote their long-term health, safety.
