Reminder: Safe Harbor, Sex Trafficking Presentation
September 22, 2016 | 8:am | Kanabec County Jail Training Room
Minnesota studies have found that 14-20% of homeless youth have engaged in survival sex (providing sex in exchange for food, shelter, money, etc.), and have been sexually exploited.
Locations where youth are recruited and captured into operations include schools, parks, shelters and youth programming, juvenile detention and treatment facilities, streets, bus stops, libraries, malls, and other places where youth congregate.
Minnesota Safe Harbor
No Wrong Door to Services for Sexually Exploited Youth
Although youth who are being sexually exploited regularly interact with numerous social service professionals their experiences are often overlooked or misidentified.
MN Safe Harbor creates a trauma-informed, victim centered system of response to identify child victims and move them towards recovery and healing.
Learn how you can become an important part of the Safe Harbor system of care in your region.
