Children in the foster care system are at an increased risk of becoming victims of trafficking and exploitation. Removed from their homes and often placed far away from their home communities, they are much more vulnerable to a variety of dangers due to the trauma and isolation they experience. Dallas CASA has been on the front lines working with the Governor’s Office, Saving Innocence and others to increase CASA advocacy around this important issue. Hear from Chad Frymire, Program Director for Projects and Partnerships with Dallas CASA, on what makes youth in care especially vulnerable and how CASA can recognize the signs to help prevent children from becoming victims of trafficking.
Conversations with CASA is an online series from Texas CASA that explores current issues and trends affecting child welfare, children and families in care and the CASA network.
