To date, research has revealed important and often nuanced distinctions between those trafficked for sex, labor and domestic servitude. Human trafficking is a diverse and complex phenomenon, of which improved data is critical towards identifying methods for successful intervention.

Protect Us Kids Foundation focus centers on child exploitation techniques that leverage technology, data, and the social and human factor. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the invaluable subject matter expertise, global networks, and intelligence-driven resources, which we have learned, if used cohesively, have a shared mission to protect youth worldwide from cyber-related crimes, thereby, allowing them the freedom and security to navigate online.

The Protect Us Kids Foundation Health Affairs, Sexual Assault, Advocacy & Outreach Program serves as the Foundation’s lead in coordinating and facilitating partnership collaboration activities, and initiatives with social services and behavioral and mental health entities, in support of youth who have been impacted by online child sexual exploitation. In addition, this program also serves as a bridge between the victim and agencies that provide services for those affected by sexual assault and abuse from online child sexual exploitation and/or online commercial sex trafficking.

The Health Affairs, Sexual Assault, Advocacy & Outreach program provides:

Support access and awareness of social services, as well as mental and behavioral health resources and tools, to combat online commercial sex trafficking services to underserved and rural communities globally.
  • Assist youth worldwide, within underserved and rural communities, with gaining health resources that will assist them through recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration.
  • Serve as the primary Health Affairs Liaison for all Protect Us Kids Foundation partnership initiatives.
  • Serve as the Center for Excellence for health research and education on the prevention, understanding and treatment from the long-term effect of chronic cyber bullying and online sexually explicit behavior (to include visual stimulations), to the battery of measurements in practice by pediatricians and other health care providers, to assess a child’s physical and emotional well-being.
  • Provide crisis intervention to youth that have become victims of sexual assault and abuse due to online commercial sex trafficking.
  • Ensure the Sexual Assault Advocacy & Outreach Program aligns Protect Us Kids Foundation efforts towards protecting youth from being victimized by predators that leverage cyberspace as an international exploitation tactic.
  • Assist survivors by helping them attain a place in their lives where confidence and safety is restored.
