Each year 300-500 youth in King County are commercially sexually exploited. Many of the same risk factors that lead children to enter the foster care system also leave children vulnerable to commercial sexual exploitation.
The Accelerator YMCA, Casey Family Programs, King County and YouthCare are working together to provide a support system for foster youth who have been sexually exploited. We are seeking specialized foster homes to care for these young people with the support of a dedicated team of experts.
CAREGIVERS WILL RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING TRAINING AND SUPPORT:
- Extensive training and support—both upfront and ongoing
- Access to a CSEC social work expert for consultation services
- In home support services and respite care
- Ongoing community building/recreational activities for families and children
