A supportive adult may be the difference in homeless youth not being trafficked

Children and Youth Services Review Journal Article
This study is the largest to specifically assess homeless youth’s demographic and social variables for association with trafficking experience. Homeless youth who are and are not trafficked share similar life experiences, but those with a supportive adult in their life had lower odds of being trafficked. Building upon our research, future investigations exploring order of occurrence will elucidate the risk factors for and protective factors against trafficking among homeless youth, contributing to evidence-based prevention efforts.
