States' Prevention of Child Sex Trafficking in Foster Care
In 2013, the Administration for Children and Families reviewed statistics from several studies and found that up to 90 percent of children who were victims of sex trafficking had been involved with child welfare services, which include foster care. States are required by Federal law to develop policies and procedures related to identifying and providing services for children in foster care who are, or are at risk of becoming, a victim of sex trafficking. For select States, we will use foster care case file documentation to evaluate (1) the extent to which children were screened to determine whether they are, or are at risk of becoming, a victim of sex trafficking by using the States' policies and procedures; and (2) the extent to which children in foster care who are, or are at risk of becoming, a victim of sex trafficking were provided needed services.
