Since 2000, the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, also known as the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), and its reauthorizations have led to the increase in federal, state, and community anti-trafficking efforts in the United States. The TVPA includes provisions for prosecuting traffickers, preventing trafficking, and establishing protections for individuals who have been trafficked. Yet, there is ongoing need to expand knowledge of and services to youth who have been trafficked (Fong & Cardoso, 2010). One opportunity to better understand how to assist youth victims of trafficking is to acknowledge the “systems of care approach” that has served various youth populations in the United States since the 1970s.
