Aftercare

Survivors of Sex Trafficking Need Support

In 2016, an estimated 1 out of 6 endangered runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were likely child sex trafficking victims.

Of those, 86% were in the care of social services or foster care when they ran.

 

 

Human trafficking is estimated to be a $150 billion industry worldwide.

 

​More than 31,600 total cases of human trafficking have been reported to the Hotline in the last eight years.

The Hotline receives an average of 100 calls per day. 

Minors who have been trafficked are usually placed in the foster care system, where they may or may not receive the special care and counseling they desperately need.
Often, they have been heavily manipulated by their trafficker, experienced rape and violence, and may have been forcibly addicted to drugs.
They and their family need extra support.
This is where Thrive comes in.
