GET HELP - Are you a young person in need of help?

To identify and serve trafficking victims, we began our anti-human trafficking work in late 2015. We recognized the lack of consensus among providers about how to identify and serve human trafficking survivors. We committed to creating evidence-based approaches that would serve as a model for service providers in NJ and beyond.

Recognizing Human Trafficking Among Homeless Youth – Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ) needed to know how many of its clients were survivors of trafficking; moreover, CHNJ aimed to strengthen the evidence-base for service provision to homeless youth with a trafficking experience. In this way, CHNJ sought to improve the care of this important subset of its client population.
