Collaborating with Youth-Serving Agencies to Respond to and Prevent Sex Trafficking of Youth

Child Welfare Capacity Building Collaborative – 2015

Effectively meeting the requirements of the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act will require strong collaboration and cross-system coordination between child welfare and other youth-serving agencies.This document provides State and local child welfare agencies with information on partnering with other agencies to address sex trafficking. Ultimately, coordination and collaboration can advance effective identification, reporting, and services for youth who are victims or are at risk of becoming victims. Collaboration may take many forms ranging from brief consultation to the development of coordinated protocols and formation of a cross-sector collaboration or coalition.
