New Resources Available

The Family and Youth Services Bureau is committed to supporting runaway and homeless youth (RHY) programs in their anti-trafficking efforts. We know that youth who run away or experience homelessness are at high risk of becoming victims of human trafficking.  In an effort to disseminate useful human trafficking resources, we are pleased to share with you the following products:

  • Labor Trafficking Infographic - This labor trafficking infographic reflects key statistics and findings from a study conducted by Covenant House and the University of Loyola, New Orleans in 11 major cities in the U.S on labor trafficking among RHY. This resource can be easily downloaded, shared, and utilized to discuss the impact of labor trafficking on RHY. 

  • Youth Hotline Card - The Youth Hotline card provides information on important youth hotlines; such as the National Runaway Safeline, the National Human Trafficking Hotline, and the  National Domestic Violence Hotline. RHY programs can order or print this card to use it as part of their outreach efforts or to share it with youth accessing services.
