The Los Angeles County of Commercial Sexual Exploited Children (CSEC) unit connects victims with support services, specialized advocates, and can help provide temporary housing if needed. The unit works in collaboration with law enforcement and other CSEC survivor organizations to support those who have been identified as being trafficked or are at risk of being trafficked.
The needs of our exploited youth are multiple and complex, and require intensive support and trauma informed care and interventions, as well as consistent, caring adults in their lives with whom they are able to trust and connect with throughout their journey towards healing and recovery and beyond. The vast majority of these youth have experienced abuse and neglect early on and have come from families that have struggled with violence, various forms of trauma, poverty, mental health challenges, and intergenerational abuse and/or neglect. Serving this population of youths requires a great amount of collaboration and partnerships among county partners, community based organizations, Survivor Advocates, law enforcement, faith based community, foster parents, human trafficking task forces, schools, parents, and the youth themselves. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has been at the forefront of the cause and continues to provide strong leadership and oversight of all CSEC initiatives being implemented in L.A. County.
GIVE-MENTOR-LOVE Foundation work in partnership with LA County CSEC in meeting the following needs of society’s most vulnerable children and youth – those that have been victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation, a severe form of child abuse.
