Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a holistic prevention and intervention program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant that would provide essential services for domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) survivors who are in the care of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Although exact prevalence and incidence of DMST is difficult to determine due to the hidden nature of the exploitation, the literature shows that thousands of American youth are at risk. The proposed program aims to bridge the gap in services for this population and increase awareness about DMST among DCFS staff and community members. The Stuart Foundation was selected as a potential funding source because of its shared commitment to helping vulnerable foster youth and its interest in innovative programming. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for the completion of this project.
