CHRC L‌egal Services Assessment for Trafficked Children (2013)

The CHRC released a Legal Needs Assessment Study for Trafficked Children in August 2013.  Children impacted by human trafficking require a multitude of services, including legal services. In the attached report, you will find the results of a CHRC led research project seeking to better understand the legal services landscape for trafficked children, including gaps in legal services, as well as opportunities for improving outcomes, using Cook County, Illinois as a case study. The project also included input from service providers around the country for a national comparison. We hope the results of our project help inform stakeholders working on this important issue.
