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. (Author abstract)
