CSEC Program Vision Statement“We work to end CSEC/Y through the identification, intervention, and education.” The Children and Family Services Commercially Sexually Exploited Children/Youth (CFS CSEC) Team supports CFS staff to ensure children and youth who are at-risk or have been commercially sexually exploited get the support and resources they need. The team continues to explore practices to improve the early identification of commercially sexually exploited children and youth to reduce and prevent prolonged abuse and raise awareness of child sex trafficking.
