Abstract

Human trafficking has gained attention in recent years and many people are now aware that it exists. However very few people are aware of the impact that sex trafficking has on the family.

The study also helps examine if Families Against Sex Trafficking is providing services families feel are needed and helpful. The themes which emerged from the qualitative data and overall results of the research will be presented.
