Resource Efficacy in Helping Victims to Exit Sex Trafficking

22 June 2018


Sex trafficking is a significant problem across the United States. In Portland, Oregon there were 469 commercially exploited children between 2009 and 2013 (Carey & Teplitsky, 2013). Previous research on sex trafficking has focused on demographic information of people who have been trafficked and on methodology to identify victims of sex trafficking. However, there is a lack of research on the resources offered to victims of sex trafficking, specifically when considering which resources are considered most valuable to victims. The purpose of this study was to identify the resources that are offered and to evaluate which types are the most efficacious to the exiting process from the perspective of victims of sex trafficking. This knowledge allows those who advocate for victims of sex trafficking to know how to best provide support and allocate resources.
